I identify myself as Pagan when asked, but I don't really follow a specific path, or belong to a group.
When asked what kind of pagan I am, I say my spirituality is nature based.
I was raised in a non-Christian family. My dad felt organized religion was the worst thing to happen to mankind since...well, you get the idea, LOL. However, we were encouraged to explore spiritual ideas, even Christianity, and keep an open mind as we kept our grains of salt handy. Also to respect the beliefs of others, even if we found the flying spaghetti monster a trifle silly...

It's great to be here.
