P is for… Pagan

Too obvious, you might think. And yet there are many types of pagan, and much to say about paganism – or it wouldn’t need a blog project. Here, for starters, are some of the type-of-pagan labels I have applied to myself over the decade since I became interested in paganism.

pagan
neo-pagan
wiccan
solitary
witch
hedge witch
druid
bard
eclectic
novice
ritual writer
humanist
mystic
right-hand path
Quaker
Buddhist
academic
bookworm
fluffy bunny

They’re mostly a little true and a little untrue, each one: for example, I am generally solitary, in paganism as in life, but as much practically as philosophically, and I can be a novice who knows many things and an expert who tries to keep beginner’s-mind, depending what I’m doing at the time.
