"Very interesting and informative, thank you.
I am drawn to Aida-wedo, my 4 year old son suddenly drew me a picture of her back in 1992 and told me to put it on the wall near the front door to the street, so she has been there ever since.
"I agree, each to their own, private personal space can be how you want it, no rules and regs to follow.

About Myself & My Interests..
I'm a 58 year old Crone who was born an eclectic path witch, and I took up Pagan Druidry when I reached 50.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
I am influenced most by strong women across history, especially Queen Boudicca of the Iceni, Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, and Joan of Arc. Emmilene Pankhurst and all the Suffraggettes. So many have taught and influenced me over the decades it's difficult to list, but the ones I appreciate most have been my GrandMa's, Maud Sapsford, and May Wyman who taught me right from wrong, and took the time and trouble to show me the beliefs and practiced of the ancient ones. Also the faith healer, Matthew Manning, deserves a mention, he was a catalyst for change in me for the better. And his holiness the Dalai Lama, for obvious reasons.
