Hello all!
« on: August 01, 2013, 05:47:57 PM »

Hello! So glad to finally be apart of this forum. I've been lurking about for a week or so, reading through all the threads I could. So much useful information on here! I'm so glad I found it, and thank you to you all who've made that happen. It's definitely a BIG help for newcomers like me.   ;D

I can't quite pinpoint when or how my interest in Wicca happened. It's just something that I thought was interesting. I finally decided to jump in and really do some research. So far I'm amazed and love everything I've read. It's very refreshing to find a religion that really speaks to me and just feels right. I was raised Catholic; religion class and church once a week. I always believed in a higher power, but Christianity never sat well with me. I'm glad I've got a place to come to discuss this, as I don't know if I'll be telling friends and family anytime soon. I already threw everyone through a loop and made myself the black sheep when I went Vegan a year and a half ago, and this may get the same reaction.  ::)  But, luckily, I'm already used to comments and jokes based off of inaccurate stereotypes.

My username comes from my love of Willow trees and my black cat, Bear. I adopted him almost a year ago and we share a mutual love and annoyance for each other. I enjoy reading, sketching, and sculpting.

I've been looking through every website I can find and taking notes as I go along. It's the only way I'll remember anything I've read! I plan to read a few of Scott Cunningham's books, as recommended from this forum  ;D I've started Margot Adler's Drawing Down the Moon, but it's a bit difficult for me to get through.

I've read through quite a bit of this forum, but any additional suggestions or advice for me is more than welcome.

Oh, and Happy Lughnasadh!

Welcome to TCC Willow, I hope you find all you seek while you're here with us. From the look of things you are proceeding very well, reading and taking notes. This is how we've all done it, and its still the best way. Be aware though there are many who "publish" or post information that may not be accurate, if it doesn't feel right, question it. This is a great place for information as the info is accurate, if something is wrong or mistaken then others will point it out and it will be discussed, maybe even at length.
 
Anyway, I'm starting to ramble.
Welcome aboard and enjoy your time with us.

Thanks Drac! I've been trying to read up on each aspect of Wicca from various sources, quite a few which I found through here, just to be sure that they are as accurate as possible.

I was just reading through your posts in the A.S.K. section and they were very helpful!  ;D

Glad it all helped. May I say though; don't rush it, just take your time. It's not going to disappear, and you have all the time you need. If you do get stuck, just ask and someone will help.

I definitely am. It's a whole lot to take in. lol What I meant is that I pick one topic of it, the history or the Sabats as an example, and find as many articles, blog postings, or whatever on that. When I feel like I've read enough and understand it, I move on to the next.  ;D

That's a very good system, you must be scientifically minded. Gather the evidence, compare it with similar, draw conclusion and make a decision based on your findings then move on to the next question. Good for you.
