About Me:
I'm a single (and looking. wink wink nudge nudge) Heathen located in central NJ.
I'm into hiking, camping, cooking, wood/stone carving, Galdrar, germanic studies among many other things. I'm an outdoorsman at heart and love the adrenalin rush of free climbing. I belong to the Pinelands Association and love to learn about the local NJ ecology. I am in recovery and take a heathen viewpoint of it. I see spirituality and the presence of the gods in nature. Thusly, I have an affinity with the Wanes. I find that the Wanes are under studied if they aren't completely ignored. I'm grounded yet playful. Does that make me "playgrounded"? I love dry humor, funny sarcasm (not scathing sarcasm) and ridiculous humor. Monty Python, Drawn Together, Shawn of the Dead, George Carlin...I find them all hilarious.

I've been a practicing Heathen for most of my life and have facilitated numerous workshops in Central NJ on the runes and Germanic beliefs including a workshop at New Jerseys Pagan Pride Day.
Favorite Books
The Poetic Edda, Celtic Myth and Legend, the Lord of the Rings, Into the Wild, Nietzsche, Ivanhoe, Dune, Victor Hugo, good ol Snorri, the Otherworld trilogy by Tad Williams, Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan, Camus, Huxley, the Mabinogion, The Real Mother Goose, Muir, Emerson, the list ranges from classics to Sci-fi. The Nibelungenleid, Volsungasaga.
Beliefs / Practices
Other Beliefs/Practices
I strive to lead my life by the Nine Noble virtues although sometimes I fall short. I'm not perfect and it's comforting to me to know that there is always room for improvement. It gives me something internal to constantly strive for.
I'm a big fan of hard rock and heavy metal. I mosh painted in woad with a big Tyr rune painted above my eyes and down my nose.
I'm also a big fan of Nordic and Celtic folk music.
No rap and some country.

I climb on everything! Trees, fences, rocks, playgrounds, mountains....if it can be scaled....I scale it. Hel, my profile pic is me in a tree. My animal spirits are a Squirrel and a Raccoon. Although, unlike Ratatosk, I tend to not hurl insults from the boughs of ash trees. :) I stomp in puddles, throw a mean snowball, wade through rivers on a whim, and walk in rain as nekkid as the law allows. ;P Spontaniety and having fun are important. The world is too serious and playing like a child is good for the soul.

If you are unhappy...

Posted on October 31, 2008 at 8:35am 2 Comments

Once upon a time, there was a rebellious sparrow who decided not to fly south for the winter. However, soon the weather turned so cold that he reluctantly started to fly south. In a short time ice began to form on his wings and he fell to earth in a barnyard, almost frozen. A cow passed by and crapped on the sparrow. The sparrow thought "This surely is the End.". The manure warmed him and defrosted his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he began to sing. Just then a large cat came by and,… Continue

A journey of the self.

Posted on October 20, 2008 at 7:49pm 0 Comments

My hike was today ....interesting. It was in an area that I'd never been to before. While I was out there the scenery changed from deciduous forest to cedar/juniper. Whenever that happens I know that there is a swamp nearby. Or at least wetlands of some sort. I decided I'd go check it out.

The sun was shining through the foliage and the coniferous area ahead of me seemed dark and foreboding. There was an odd chill to the air emanating from the denseness of the cedars.

I… Continue

Left Shoulder: A Continuation Of The Artwork

Posted on October 7, 2008 at 3:25pm 0 Comments

My left shoulder has just finished healing. The disparaties between the left and right are great. Fortunately, my new artist can "match up" the right shoulder before I extend the branches across my back.

Now I can say "Excuse me ma'am, would you like to see my nuts and branch?" Or "I'm John and I always have… Continue
