No one asked me the question prior to Paganicon, and I found the comparison between religious communities fascinating.  Now, Paganicon was held in the Midwest and "keeping one's feelings to oneself" is a part of the overall culture there but I cannot recall ever hearing anyone speak about their love for (non-Christian) gods.

I should know that, I grew up in the Midwest.  Wink  Nobody even wanted to know what religion you were; they just stayed out of it.  Here in the South it's like "What church do you go to?". 
Definately, there was a difference from moving there to here.  I get way more questions asked about my religion. 

And you know what...  Before Tapio came into my life I craved a relationship like some have with the Christian god.  The kind where you can tell the other all your problems, happiness, etc.  Luckily with Tapio I feel the love even stronger, because he supports nearly all my decisions and encourages me to work on bettering myself.  But there is no punishment, just a silent stare that says "You can do better, because I see it in you."  Just like a father...  The only way to describe what I feel for him in return is love.

while trees gently whisper
those intimate
longed-for words
The greet wheel
is still revolving
with untouchable sovereignty
so invulnerable." ~Eluveitie
