I, too was active here years ago. Sometimes our journey takes us to places we never thought possible... :shrug:

Time to come home!

To both old friends and, hopefully, new ones, my name is Seeker and I am old enough to know that there is much I do not know. :old:

Hello all.

I'm cheese, in my early 40's and I live in Louisiana. I'm looking forward to discovering druidry and I'm really impressed with the OBOD material so far.

Hello Lauffeuer,

I see the Bard Awen in your signature now - I'm glad you were able to get this fixed. :)

Cheers,
Michael :tiphat:

Hello all, my name is Keith Ferguson (This is not actually my legal name, but it was the name I was given at birth and then it was changed after I was adopted. I use it now within Pagan communities because I feel it fits me more plus it is like me paying respect to my parents who gave me life....). I am 38. I live in Huntsville, AL. I am currently on the Bardic course. Nov 2012 was when the realization hit me that I was Pagan, and it was probably two weeks or a month thereafter that I realized I was Druid. It was an amazing awakening. Every question I had ever had just went away and I felt complete peace. I felt a new understanding of the world around me and started to look at EVERYTHING differently, including myself! I also started to take on a new appreciation for everything and a better more positive attitude. I have 4 cats, two male and two female. I have a significant other and we've had a handfast together. We have not had a legal wedding because I am on disability and right now we cannot afford for me to lose what I receive every month plus what little medical benefits I have. She is also on the Bardic course, but she is more shaman than druid. We do not have any kids except for our cats. Anyway I think that is quite a bit about me for now and I thank you for allowing me to join the forum board. I have never truly been on a forum board before and there are so many rules to read and I am doing my best not to get lost! :D

Bright Blessings!!!

Hello there, everyone!
My name is Angie, I am a youthful 48, and I live in Temecula, California, USA
I look forward to making friends here, as I have been unable to find anyone with out here with beliefs/practices similar to mine.
I love animals (especially horses, wolves, and birds-who seem to enjoy following me), nature, music, dancing, reading, & I generally have a passion for life as well as a respect for the very real but often unseen-world/s... :-D
I enjoy making new friends!

Love, Life, and Spirit of Awen to all!!!

Hi, I'm Heather! I'm a 40 year old mom to 3 boys, living in Philadelphia, PA in the USA. I just started the Bard program, which I am working on alongside the ADF Dedicant path. (I think they'll compliment each other nicely.) Looking forward to sharing experiences and learning from others here.
