Hello everyone. My name is Mike, from CT. I just turned 30 on 9/29.

I have, for the past 5 years or so, considered myself "Pagan". The reasons might seem basic, but I have always loved nature and even as a young child, I felt most comfortable in nature and in my teen years began "worshiping" nature even though I had not a clue what I was doing.

I guess only in the past 5 years or so I began learning about Paganism. It stemmed from my love of Halloween, and I began reading into the holiday and read books on the subject of Samhain. As I researched further, it felt comfortable and it made sense to me. It was as if my whole life was making sense.

I consider myself on the fringes of paganism and the pagan community. I want more than anything to step in and immerse myself in it because I feel it is time. I have already spent time reading the articles here and I'm happy to be a part of this community.

I hope to learn from you all.
