Hello all! I suppose I should have opened with this post, but it’s never to late.
My name is Michael, I’m 28 and I live in northwestern Ohio. I am married and a father of two beautiful children, Nicholas (2) and Danielle (7). I am a trainer and certified welder, with a little bit of blacksmithing training. I’m going back to college to become an English teacher, which has always been a dream of mine. I am also a writer, mostly poetry but with an anthology of short stories that I am in the process of turning into novels.
I am a witch and have been practicing my craft for nearly two decades now. I started around the time I turned ten, introduced to the craft by my best friend and her mother. I am also a member of the OBOD, Bardic Grade, and have been in the path of druidry for nearly eight years. I’m also a polytheist with a focus on worshipping and working for/ with the Tuatha De Danann, specifically Brighid, Lugh, Dagda and Ogma. I go by the nickname Basil or the Basil Druid, or Michael.
I’m an avid sci-fi and fantasy fan, I love reading and video games. I’ve played World of Warcraft since beta, I drink far too much coffee (hazelnut) and smoke a long stem wooden tobacco pipe (cherry cavendish). I have a tumblr for my spiritual/ magical practice which I am in the process of moving here and focusing here ( thebasildruid.tumblr.com ) and my poetry blog ( mgreywood.tumblr.com ).
My craft focuses on devotional works, elemental magic, meditation, shadow work, some divination, evocation, craftsmanship and a few other aspects. Most of my workings involve chants, poems or other bits of writing as both devotional acts and a part of my spellwork. I believe that there is power in words, power behind words, power in the meaning of words.
I suppose I’ve rambled enough for now. If there are any questions, feel free to comment or to contact me at email@example.com.
