About Me

I'm a student of classical voice. I've been a pagan ever since I can remember (meaning not Christian, or Muslim, or Jewish) and have been practicing witchcraft for about ten years. My views have changed often, but lately (for the past five years or so) I've been looking for something visceral. Traditional witchcraft seems to be that. 

Let's see, though, let's give a little about my educational background, because this is a school, and why the hell not. 

I'm currently attending college as a vocal major, but I do a ton of individual study on a wide variety of subjects, most of which have been about the occult and historical witchcraft. I -love- comparative mythology, and wish I could take more classes (I'd like to get a minor degree in folklore, or something). I took Comparative Mythology last semester with a FANTASTIC teacher. It was an online class, so I really feel at home here. 

Outside of reading faery tales and myths, I read -a lot- of books on the history of witchcraft, and I also read a lot of books on the pseudo-history of witchcraft (best to know the wrong facts as well, in my opinion!). I've read a lot of DIY books as well, but found a lot of them to be, er...too flowery in their language (I call to thee, Master of the Hidden Ways, Lord of Light, Bearer of Flame, yada yada ada) and not straight forward about the stuff at all. 

I'm a gardener and mead maker, a hiker, and I love to swim. Living in the beautiful mountains of Montana is something I am always thankful for. The only other place I have felt truly at home was when I was wandering the moors of Cornwall with the local village wisewoman last March. I enjoyed it much more than the hustle and bustle of London. Though...I do miss those toffee peanuts....

I'm very musically and verbally inclined. Right now I'm learning to speak fluently in Italian, German, French and eventually Russian. As someone training in the operatic arts, I find it important to know the languages one is singing in, to better convey the emotion of an aria or art song. My favorite language to sing is in German :) Their poetry is magnificent, and the language comes easily to me. I also love to write poetry, usually about nature, or the nature of things. Rather abstract poetry. 

As you can say, I'm rather verbose! I hope that doesn't bother anyone :( I just have an idea, and it jumps to other ideas rather quickly. One accumulates a lot of facts when one has studied this stuff for five plus years (and still so much more to learn). More and more I'm finding that what I was studying falls in line with what we speak about here. It gives me confirmation, and I want to make sure that my ideas are inline with the tradition. So, I get rather excited, hehe. And again, I apologize in advance if I ask too many questions, or write an essay on something I find significant T_T

I love to drum as well. The Irish fiddle drum is something I've always wanted to learn how to play, and my recent forays up in to Canada to go to pagan festivals (which I do for the social aspect, and not so much the rituals, because, let's face it....there are some out there that are just too fluffy and guh...) have taught me how to play. It's fun :D I also play the violin, and at one time was sort of good; but I stopped playing to focus on my vocal studies. Every now and again, I'll pull it out and play a bit. I really want to construct my own lyre and learn how to play that. I -love- ballads, and thus want an arsenal of ballads to sing with a lyre when I go camping up in Canada. 

I'm usually up for long periods of time, and will often access this site from my phone. So, if you want to message me, feel free. I love chatting with people :D

I love poetry, and writing poetry. I love faery tales, and myths, legends, and Doctor Who. mmm...David Tenant.

lol...You are very interesting. :-) I wrote some "poetry" when I was younger. Most of it is fairly dark in nature. I, too, love to talk. However, I'm afraid I may not challenge you much as I am not quite that well educated.....

When the liturgy was updated that effected both the PDF and hard copy. They are identical but the PDF has no cover. If you bought an original, email me for a free PDF update.

I agree...for me I feel that all the answers are firmly sealed inside each of us. We must ask the questions...dare to look deeply and fully at something, someone and then gaze into ourselves and piece the puzzle together...fuse the knowlege with the instinct. Only then will we feel the warmth of enlightenment or the security of truth. I always remind myself not to ask questions I'm not ready to know the answers to. Fear is powerful and it taints us....it has hindered me long ago. Now I stand tall safe inside my own skin with who and what I am. Again you have invoked my strength and thought with your words, handsome. Thank you ;-)
