30-day Paganism Meme: Intro to meme

So, this is a survey/blog meme I found circulating among a few of my friends on DreamWidth, and I figured I’d do it, as I’m finding myself emerging from a rut and just kind of wandering around, still occasionally distracted by shiny things, because the rut may have been boring, but outside of it is all open and scary at times.

Basically, the collection of questions/prompts can be adjusted to fit a person’s own path (I’ve changed “magic” to “divination” or “ritual” here and there, for example) and so if you’re pagan, Hindu, or whatever else — or hell, if you’re a Catholic who’s a big saint groupie (I knew a few of those types), feel free to swipe and adjust for yourself. I’m probably going to start on this tomorrow, and if I find myself busy or simply forgetting for a day, I’ll pick up where I left off the next day.
