Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

My name is Matty, and I live in Newcastle Upon Tyne in the UK.

Over the past five years, since leaving the Christian faith of my youth, I have charted my spiritual journey on this blog. I went from being an Atheist to a Naturalistic Pantheist then to a Pagan. I still consider myself a Pantheist and a Pagan. In particular my interest has been in Druidry and I am a member of ADFOBOD and the British Druid Order. Over the past few years I have also become more interested in Heathenry and I now call myself an Anglo-Saxon Druid, because I combine elements of Anglo-Saxon Heathenry with Celtic Animistic Druidry to create my path.

What does that mean exactly? It means that I honour my ancestors, the spirits of nature and the Anglo-Saxon gods. I brew mead to drink and give to the Kindreds as offerings. I consult the runes in divination and maintain an altar for the Kindreds when I am at home. I research and learn about the natural world around me and I celebrate the eight festivals of the Pagan year. I am a member of the UK Green Party and I seek to live an ethical and environmentally sustainable lifestyle.

I hope you will join me in this journey and you can do so by following this blog or connecting with me on social media.
