Hello to all! Just joined and wanted to introduce myself. I first started practicing Wicca back in the early 1990’s. After a few years I stopped, due in part to going off to college and partly because there was a lot of negative reactions from friends and family that I just didn’t want to deal with back then. I always told myself someday I’d get back to it. 25 years later in 2019 I found myself with a home and a few acres of woods and I felt a clear call to come back to the craft. Its been a strange path I’ve walked but it’s wonderful to come home again. I’m so happy to have found you all, this seems like an inspiring magical community here! Earlier this year I spent a few months building this stone circle and altar out in woods for my rituals and meditations. Here’s a pic of my new magical space. Well, looking forward to getting to know you all and working my way through the courses and such! Blessed Be.
