I’m a 20-something Druid-in-training involved with the Ár nDraíocht Féin tradition. I say that I’m training because, even though I’ve completed the Dedicant Program, I feel that I have a lot to learn. I truly don’t believe that someone can be a full-fledged Druid until they’ve had years of life-experience. In my point of view, I’m just a fledgling!
Currently I’m the grove organizer for the newly formed Northern Rivers Protogrove. Formerly, I was an active member of Muin Mound Grove in Syracuse, NY where I served as their secretary and webmistress for a few years. I am (very slowly) working on the Initiate Study Program and the first circle of the Artisan Guild Study Program. I’ve contributed some material to ADF’s podcast “Tribeways” and publication Oak Leaves. I’m also an editor for Oak Leaves and a mentor for the Dedicant Program. I follow an Irish hearth culture but am interested and open to working with other Celtic deities. I would label myself as a Neo-Pagan Druid with liberal Celtic Reconstructionist methodologies/tendencies. I have a day job, but in my spare time I do arts and crafts. I’m very fond of sewing, especially dolls and plushies. I’m trying to teach myself how to knit, crochet, and spin but that is slow going and my list of completed projects is relatively small and unimpressive. To see some of my creations, please visit my Deviant Art page or my Etsy shop Changeling Art. I also like to make costumes for myself and my husband. We love going to Renaissance festivals. Besides that, I’m a vegetarian and an environmentalist. I firmly believe that Druidism, despite what it might have been to the ancients, has grown into a very earth-centered spirituality and that we must improve our relationship with the Earth Mother and the Nature Spirits. I’m taking baby steps to living a more eco-friendly life. At the moment I’m interested in local eating, wildcrafting, urban homesteading, container gardens, apartment composting, worm bins, and recycling things in art projects.
Other things I like include reading (historical fiction, fantasy, history, manga, and Pagan publications mostly), writing (I don’t do as much of this as I used to), nature walks, traveling, going to museums, cooking, going to zoos, and spending time with my tribe.
I am happily married to my husband, Weretoad. We have three lazy but lovable cats, and one very active toddler who absolutely loves spending time outside!
