I hail originally from Santa Barbara, CA, have traveled all over the US, Canada, Mexico and Central America. I'm in Portland, OR. A short lay over on my way back to the mountains and forest, where my heart is.
I'm into Fire Dancing & Druidism & playing/jamming bluegrass & jamband music. These for me go hand in hand as my matron deity is none other than the Fiery Brighid herself (Goddess of fire & inspiration).
I’ve been a practicing Druid for 24 years, a Pagan for 28. I started Wiccan, but I not so much out grew as I evolved beyond Wicca to Druidism. In a strange way, my Druidry has lead me to the ReWilder way. They fit comfortably together for me. This may be because my Druidry evolved in the wild places, on the road, Rainbow gatherings and music festivals rather than in an urban environment. Druidry has shaped my lifestyle choices. My lifestyle choices has in turn introduced me to fascinating people that have inspired me and influence and reshaped my Druidry. It has most definetly been a good ghosti-relationship.
I love music from Classical, Bach & Mozart to Classic Rock, (Jethro Tull is my all time favorite band) to Celtic Music to Modern Rock like Stone Temple Pilot, Radiohead, Staind & Evanescence to Rockabilly (I grew up on old school Metal). My main thing is Bluegrass/Jamgrass/Jam Bands & Jethro Tull. I play the Bass, Guitar, Flute & Banjo and now the Mandolin that I'm truly enjoying.
I love hiking and camping out. Go to Concerts & Music Festivals, Rainbow Gatherings, Burning Man type Events (Never been to Burning Man itself and have no desire to ever go.) & Pagan Gatherings. Love to travel & meet new people.
Though Brigdid is my spiritual mother, I am actually a devout Devotee of the Goddess Airmid and am going to college, earning my certifications as a master Herbalist. Someone recently pointed out to me that maybe the gods of healing were going to claim me one by one. lol
I'm a ReWilder Druid who is a member of ADF, Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship
