Raised as a military brat; encouraged by my parents to attend various religious denominational services. Grew up in Japan and didn't 'know' my country until I was 12.
I started this journey many years ago after I got out of the Fleet Marines (corpsman), lived in Laguna beach during my hippy phase, finished off my education over the next 10 years, then took a 25-year side trip after finding one of the most fantastic men.
That side-trip has completed and I now have a best friend. Now back to my original journey. After changing the dynamics of my 25-year relationship, I consider myself single. As a solitary pagan, it's probably for the best.
I am a member of OBOD (Bard grade).
How about authors?

K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, Gordon Dickson, Sword of Truth (series by Terry Goodkind); James Blish and (many) others.

Spiritual but not Religious, Druid
Love physically when you can; love spiritually when you can't. Mind my own business. Listen more than talk. Try to see other perspectives. Be supportive when needed.
Camping, kyaking, swimming, cooking, reading, SCUBA, trying to get into Tarot and Runes, using favorite tools (air brush, pen and ink, and carbon dust), bonsai training, watching beautiful people, computer graphics, photography.
I just discovered drum circles! I decided to do a dry-run at the GreenSong Grove Beltaine festival prior to exposing myself to the Ocala FPG Beltain festival. Awesome. Totally awesome.
Got a little crazy and adopted a Didgeridoo, an Aussie aborigine wind instrument. At Beltaine Ocala 2009, I got a bit crazier than usual and got a Bou-Grabu from Shawn. Great heartbeat sound...
Now I have to find a local drum instructor.
People who manage to keep their standards and ethics, and those who strive to better themselves in some fashion. People who can laugh.
How did you find PaganSpace?
Looked for something like this (Googled it...)

Hey Friend! How are you? Well, I´d like to know a little bit more about the people on my network, after all, did not invited them stupidly...lol
Tell me about your spiritual path, please! Or anything you want to.
I make part of a greek/turkish trad, and we honour Hekate in all Her faces and epitets, but I begun my way in the Alexandrian tradition of Wicca, after that, I was iniciated in the Wanen Tradition, a kind of germanic witchcraft. 10 years ago I begun to study the greek pagans and all kinds of Hekate's worship, and now I'm founding a new reconstrucionist path of mysteries. I call it The Chthonian Tradition.
Well, this is a little bit of myself, feel free to tell about you, ok? I'd love to know more about you!
There are worse things to get addicted to than Drum Circles. We have a pretty cool one on Siesta Key every Sunday at sun set. Several of the same drummers who were doing it at FPG are always there.
OMG! I am really sorry for not getting back to you after your response to me... I didnt get a notification and had assumed that you didnt write back...!!
I have to confess I have a facination for bonsai trees (perhaps going back to the time as a child where I bought my mum a plastic one as a present... but the root of this facination is unknown to me... most likey its beauty appeals to me or could it be the patient manipulation of nature?? ...)
I do not have any bonsai trees per se but I did get an egg shaped pot as an office present for christmas which was meant to be used to sprout basil plants.I got the idea instead to repot one of my young citrus plants into it and its doing a good job so far... fingers crossed, if the pot lasts that long, it may produce an interesting result...
