Greetings and salutations
« on: June 30, 2013, 04:15:57 pm »
Hello! I'm a 20 something solitary witch from NJ. I've never been a part of a Pagan forum (or any kind of group, really). I think I picked up my first book on Wicca in 2008 and have studied and read quite a bit since then. I wasn't raised with any formal religion, but mythology and folklore always fascinated me, and I've felt a special connection towards nature since I was young. So Paganism feels like a good place to be.

My biggest struggle right now is moving out of the reading/researching "Armchair Pagan" phase and actually practicing ritual on a regular basis. The loneliness of not knowing any other Pagans doesn't help, so I thought communicating online might be a good place to start. Looking forward to learning from and sharing with the community.

Peace,
Noid
