PBP: Reading others’ posts

I’m thoroughly enjoying the Pagan Blog Project so far. I’ve learned the fantastic word awen which resonates with me really strongly: it seems to encompass that feeling of delight in creation that I have been waxing lyrical about. I’ve also seen others’ altars and learned about why they create and sustain them; I’ve had it reaffirmed to me that people adore metaphors (they are awesome); and I’ve learned about new deities I’d not heard of before.

I’ve also noticed, through reading ‘About’ pages and sidebars, that quite a large proportion of us taking part in PBP are queer and/or genderqueer. I wonder if that’s quite a pattern in Paganism, since it might appeal to those following different paths from the traditional ones assigned. I am queer and not-quite-sure-about-my-gender, and it is very reassuring to see so many others in the Pagan community.

I’m really glad I decided to take part, since it is helping me to feel less isolated. I’m not just a tiny!Pagan waving a little ‘faith’ flag from a misty valley somewhere in south west Britain; I’m actually part of this creative wave of faith and spirituality, and that feels amazing.
