What is it Like to Be a Pagan?

Something I enjoy doing is sitting and talking with someone about our own individual paths through life.

Sitting at a table sharing some food and/or drink, sitting on a stone wall

“It’s easy to get to Colva,” my neighbour here in Agonda (south Goa) said “just cross the river at the end of the beach at low tide then walk along the shore until you find the path that goes up the hill.” I set off along the beach in my flip flops, took them off

Sigil Witchery, a review

It may seem strange to read a review of a book from one publisher on another publisher’s blog. Moon Books is not the only Pagan publisher out there, thus they cannot possibly publish every book worth reading. Llewellyn has been in the biz a lot longer. Even with several years of tripe and not-so-well-edited books
