Am I a pagan? For lack of a better word, I suppose. Altho pagan is a pretty broad term, as is heathen. Both just mean country person. I happen to be a suburbanite, who loves nature, has a definite link to Asian religions, a warm fuzzy feeling for Christ as an everyman, only a son of god, in that we are all children of god.
So, I guess I've been a "pagan" all my life, even when shoved into a fundie Xtian mold. The Greek philosophers called themselves cosmopolitans, citizens of the cosmos. The gnostic Xtians called themselves friends of God. I'm somewhere in there, but not sure where. Too much information out there still to gather, absorb and internalize. Meanwhile, I will look at the moon, plant flowers, pull weeds, swim in the sea, put up my solstice tree, pet my kitties and hope a dragonfly lands on my book for a chat a few times this summer.
( I know I am a hippie/former punk/fierce intellectual/rebel/earth mother. OK, enough labels!)
