What's in a Name...

Do you ever think back to the day you created your blog? After reading Carolina Gonzalez's blog post today, I did. What thoughts or ideas helped you in choosing your blog name? Why did I decide on "Pagan in the Rough?" There were a couple of reasons. First, because I am Pagan and second because I consider myself still very rough around the edges. I'm always digging, always reading and studying, always trying new and different spells, rituals, etc. Yes, there are those tried and true that I stick with, but I am always open to new ideas and ways of doing things. I don't confine myself to just one. There's just too much out there! I've got books on Italian and Celtic witchcraft, Egyptian Gods/Goddesses and history and, most recently, Hoodoo is on my reading table. My tarot cards are Celtic and Bast watches over my alter. I have rearranged my bedroom so as to be able to see the Moon at night because that is very important to me. This is what works for me. It may not for others. I glean knowledge from many different sources and use a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

So do I call myself a Witch? No, not yet. I'm still just a pagan in the rough.
