I'm a Solitary Eclectic Wiccan. I respect all religions and am very interested in other pagan paths. I grew up Christian and left that path 5 years ago. It wasn't a easy choice. I have always been drawn to and curious to the Occult/Metaphysical. I've been Pagan/Wiccan officially 2 years. But I guess unofficially I've been gradually gravitating to this path for at least 7.
