Feileacan. What part of Ohio are you in? I live in Belmont County in the Bellaire/Bridgeport area. If you live near me it would be great to finally meet another Druid/Ovate/Bard. None, as I know of, live near me right now.

Hello everyone. Aravan is a name I picked up from a Dennis McKiernan fantasy novel. Just liked it. I'm 37 live near Dallas, Texas with my wonderful wife and two kids. I am also in nursing school but I spent 3 years in podiatry (or Chiropody in the UK) school as well. I am very interested the healing aspects and modalities of Druidry as well as re-connecting with the Earth and the benefits it can bring to my and my familes lives. My first gwersi is on its way and I am excited to begin the path. For hobbies I play guitar, draw and I used to paint as well but that was long ago. I like to read and am a very big Tolkien fan.
So, hello to all and Happy Yuletide to everyone.

P.S. I am pleasantly surprised to see so many fellow Texans here on the site!

Aravan

Hi, my name is Lori, I'm 36 and I live in Missouri. I consider myself to be a Pagan seeker at this point. I picked up Paganism by Joyce and River Higginbotham at the local library and realized that many of the things believed by Pagans fit my own beliefs far better than my former non-denominational Christian beliefs did. So I consider myself to be Pagan but I'm still seeking the right path on my Pagan spiritual journey. I've looked at Wicca, but it doesn't quite fit who I am. I've also looked at Buddhism, Taoism, Shamanism, Goddess Worship and a few other things. None of them have fit. Currently I'm studying Celtic religions and Druidry. So far I am finding it captures my spirit more than anything else I've read. I'm trying it on, so to speak, to see how it fits.

Hi everyone. I decided it was time to introduce myself. I ordered the introductory OBOD package many months ago and today made the final decision to progress with the bardic course. I signed up this morning, after watching the Seven Gifts of Druidry video, so can't wait to get my next package in the mail.

I am a 44 year old English female who relocated to the US about 9 years ago. Right now I live in a small village in Maine and have about 7 acres of wonderful woodland that I spend a lot of time in. I miss the English culture (especially the pub!) a lot but this is a beautiful place and I feel connected to the spirits of the land here. Feels odd that I left my country to search for something that was missing. Now I have found it and I realize I could have had it back in England!

I am looking forward to getting to know you all and working through the course this year. :hiya:

Merry met!

Been moving around for many years but I started in Minnesota and landed just south of Houston, at least for afew years. 37 years old. Been interested in Celtic traditions for many years, got hooked on the OBOD podcasts, and have just started the Bardic grade.

Have a small bit of land and am preping a spot for a garden, herb garden, a small grove, and maybe some grapes. If any native Texans want to give me some advice on growing down here I'm all ears, I've already learned to joys of digging in the Houston clay ;).

Blessings upon you and yours

-Treun

I'm another 'transplant' to Texas (I'm originally from California).
But as they say: "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" :wink:
