    Archery, literature, history, recently gardening, self development. Among many other things.
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Somewhat. But as it is right now I'm just trying to find my way and learn as much as I can.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I spent a few years involved in a local church (which I later understood was a misguided attempt to find spiritual enlightenment and companionship rather than actual worship). Right now, I don't know of any term other than witch (or witch-under-development) I would consider myself to be.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes and no. A lot of times I think there have been aspects of the craft in my daily life without having intentionally named it so. Many things have been with me since before I had a name for them, so to speak.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    To me traditional witchcraft is a way to understand, expand and utilize the tools and abilities we've been given to help deal with life.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    My interest was sparked at the age of twelve or thirteen. And it really hasn't gone away since, even if I have only been really active in the last couple of years. So the interest and ideas have been with me for more than a decade but I only really have two or three years of active experience.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I was looking for a place to get in touch with others that wasn't necessarily connected to the New Age or Wicca movements.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I'm hoping to find people who follow the same paths that I do, people I can learn from and share with. Many times I can have an idea or feeling that I just can't put my finger on - but with a little reading and research there usually is already a concept for that idea that all I need is a name for so I can research and study it. So maybe I don't have so much to contribute yet, since so far it seems like there are a lot of wise people here, but give me time and I'll get there.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Trolltrumman.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I find that my strong points are helping or influencing and connecting to living things around me. A few examples; I've put some work in to, for example, keeping the peace with our neighbors. I've made our yard welcoming to the animals in the area - everything comes here, both wild and domesticated. I've spoken to all of our spiders (it's an old house so we get a lot of them) and told them they are welcome to be here as long as I can't see them - and I rarely do after that.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    I've not yet mastered my own boundaries. (A family member and I once set out on a mission to defend ourselves in a legal matter and it went a little too far - ending with pretty strong offensive action instead. It did not end well for our opponent and I have been very cautious since then with my work. So now I try to only focus on using positive intent - put more energy into welcoming good than defending from bad, if that makes any sense in writing...)
  1. Since Gogol Bordello were mentioned before, I thought I'd just link the song that made me start listening to them. :)
  2. Yeah Wardruna is great. I don't know where you are from, so you might not understand their lyrics, but it gets pretty archaic sometimes. Way cool. Faun works for me too. www.youtube.com/watch?v=h42gjj23diY&list=RDpcEDw82vw1c There are a couple of other bands that I really like, and being more down the line of folk metal, they aren't always all that dark or witchy. But the music puts me in a place where I feel like I can feed off of and amplify my own energies. :mdance: So for me metal often works as witchy. Also Griegs the Hall of the Mountain King is always a winner, no matter how it's performed... One of my favorite renderings is the version done by Apocalyptica (I saw they were mentioned earlier in the thread). www.youtube.com/watch?v=zf2aIVKp1OY (Come to think of it for me a lot music that touchs on archaic speaks to me personally as witchy.)
