I'll kick this topic off by saying just about everyone here knows I'm Wiccan.  The thing is I have never been able to talk about the extent of that until now.  I am not your average run of the mill Wiccan.  I am something much darker.  Maybe I need to quit labeling myself as Wiccan and just say plain out witch.  Yeah that's it!   :clap2:   I was drawn to witchcraft I'd say at the age of 10 and by age 13 I was making up my own spells and rituals.  Funny little piece of information...I was home schooled from the age of 9 - 13...so it wasn't like the "cool hip" thing to do that made me a witch...it was destiny.  I have read plenty of Wiccan/witchcraft books but truthfully none of them impressed me THAT much and my mind seems to wander too much to even stay focused on what the author is trying to say.  You all are going to think I'm full of bullshit but this is the truth...the last book that even held my attention was The Necromantic Ritual Book period the end.  I have never belonged to a coven.  Had plenty of chances in New Orleans.  It just seemed so clickish.  I have always been a loner about things like that.  I have a REAL problem with organized religions.  Call me a rebel I guess.  So my beliefs...#1: And it harm none...do as thou will.  #2 Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Sometimes I slip and fall on on the second one...especially when times are rough.  I'm only human right now.    :rose:

What you said is pretty much what I'm all about. I found Wicca at ten. Thought I only do spells when I need to. I never can actually finish a book on it. I have read more into Nocturnal Witchcraft than the others but I really only use the books I have for referance. Like you I know the covens in New Orleans and I thought a while about joining one that mets at a Universalist Unitarian church on Jefferson Ave but decided not to. I wouldn't like to have all those rules of the coven on me and because my parents don't like my choice in religion and I still live in their home it would be diffecult to join even if I still wanted to without some kind of confrentation. I think I'm lucky to live in this city I find it to be a bit more open minded than other cities at lest in the Quarter. *my spelling sucks today sorry*  :doh:

Aah yes Madame...I remember too well my late teens & early 20's when it was jus  :star: da shit :star: to tromp around the Quarter.  But after that phase wore off my eyes were opened to just how disgusting commercialization and tourist traps are.  I DO love the old history and ghost stories of the Quarter   :rose:  but the only way I seem to be able to visit these places is in the dead of the night only to see a huge lock outside the door.  I will admit I would slip into Ye Olde Original Dungeon for a  :beer:  though.  It's hard to break away from somewhere that used to be your haunt and brings back stirring memories and shore I'd put up with  :withstupid: to dreamfast back to that.     :smoke:

You can say I am almost atheist at one time in my life but however I learned allot since then. I was raised Catholic but seem not to believe in such foolishness. I turned against the church headed more for a scientific view point. This was at a young age of only 12 however I also found wicca. I personally did not care for it. It was to goodie good. Then I read about ancient paganism and realized wicca was merely the newer version of what society wanted or rather have. I realized allot of the ancient relgions were not exactly a pile of flowers. I became interest in Druidry however everything I read was all educated gueses and nothing more. However I found a place in there. So today I practice ancient witch craft and druidry with people who I trust. Even though its considered new age right know i try to keep more of a trythfull persepective of what it once was even though Druids did not have a written language thousands of years ago. I still keep studying and learning what I can.

Whatever you label yourself as...or whatever others may call you...I don't think that is the main importance.  Fluffy bunny, tree hugger, dirt kisser, satanist, devil worshipper, white magician, black magician, vampyre... geez I probably could fill all 76800 spaces here with NAMES.  What it all boils down to is the POSITIVE ENERGY that is put in your beliefs.  Positive energy produces positive results.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist for that one.    :hippy:

Positive energy-I'm there!!  :2bounce:  Along with raising ones self esteem and potencial.  :idea: Sharing beliefs and not condeeming them. Aswell as opening minds instead of closing them to steer away from prejudice thought is something I am for.  :color:

Witchcraft without referencing back to either Wicca or ridiculous demonology drivel is difficult ........ but usually accurate for those of us with any independent streak at all. :beer:

Wiccan is rife with clicques in every community......too much power being stored instead of shared and thus we have the classic corruption of the vessel.  I think that concept predates oral history! :cussing:

I think the only two books on magic I read completely on the first sitting were Starhawk's Spiral Dance and one loosely based on modern Druid practices that I have forgotten the title of.  All the rest I read in sections only while searching for specific content.

In Wicca I am what is called a solitary practitioner, but I prefer the term popular in the leather community for those not flying a club's colors......GDI (goddamnedindependent).

Guess I am really a GDITW-B .... (goddamnedindependenttaoistwitch of a bitch)   :laugh:
or is that (goddamnedindependenttaoistbitch of a witch?)

Seems to be quite a few dear, "dark" witches @ WESTGATE.....I have an idea about something new you might like to offer here @ WESTGATE....perhaps a books fashioned similar to your "LOVE NEVER DIES....Journal of a Necrophile".....have the same silver/gold findings...(your choice)......inscribed on the cover...."My Book of Shadows."  Whataya think???  I've tried wirchcraft a few times and each time it backfired....the ole "return thrice" thingy.....but I think the witches here would love it.   :2bounce:   Always thinking.....well, about death and all things DARK!!!!!  

Love,
 darky   rip
P.S.  I forgot to mention that the pages would be blank for each of you to put your own spells and thoughts into it.    :idea:  Um, or "MY Book of The Dark Arts."  K...Raven???  That will encompass a wider range of darklings here.  Good point my friend.  Ooooh "DARK  rip  ARTS!"   :2bounce:
