Biography:
Beklager, men norsken min er elendig. I do indeed reside in Norway, but I am originally from the United States. I speak English exclusively but can read some Norwegian.

I tend to label what I do as witchery. It draws a little from the Appalachian sensibilities I grew up with, the small fragments of familial Slavic folk practice handed down to me, a decent chunk of the Norwegian culture I married into, and what I am learning as I make a study of hoodoo practices and their cultural context.

Depending on your point of view, I could be called a polytheist, or a pantheist, or an atheist, or a humanist, or an agnostic. I think that there are probably some ancestors and/or wights that are more widely acknowledged than others. They are 'larger than life' and perhaps that is why they are perceived as deities by some.

I have a strong animistic streak in me and tend to address animals, trees, plants, rocks, and man-made objects as if we are in conversation. I find that if I am respectful and speak as if a reply was expected, I will occasionally receive one.
