I started this blog to visually chronicle my spiritual journey with the hope that my questions, the answers I find, my successes and setbacks would be useful to others searching for meaning beyond mass belief and convention. Here you’ll find musings on alternative spirituality, divination, the traditions of various indigenous groups, and politics. I’m an introspective 30-something gay man living in the Seattle, Washington area who most would describe as a caring individualist.
Over the last 20 years I’ve explored many religions and ways of being. At times I’ve described myself as Christian, Atheist, Agnostic, Panenthiest, Neo-Pagan, Wiccan, or Witch. Though elements of each path remain with me, I’ve tossed aside the associated labels due to the eventual discovery of something (or many things) that offended my conscience. However one constant throughout the years has been my study and use of the Elder Futhark Runes (click here for more info). Much on the aforementioned topics can be found here.
Note on comments: I welcome dialogue that is thoughtful, respectful, and contributes to greater understanding of the topics presented. Be aware however that “free speech” as we know it in America does not apply to private, non-governmental domains. If you enter this space looking to pick a fight, you will be ignored.
