Much to my surprise I received today what I feel is a great honor.. I was listed in the “25 Most Influential Living Pagans” posted on Patheos.…/the-25-most-influential-living-pa…/

The timing on this is interesting. Recently I did a couple of workshops, and most of the attendees were young people. It was an odd feeling to realize that I have been practicing Witchcraft for more years than they have been alive. Where has the time gone?

My life’s work has been devoted to trying to help people understand and embrace the powerful spiritual lineage we all share. I have tried to be part of the work to uplift our religion/spirituality and secure our rightful place among the world religions and spiritual systems.

It hasn’t been easy, and it has cost me much in terms of losing important relationships, enduring personal attacks, and missing out on many of the pleasantries that are enjoyable in Life because my work was a priority.. That being said, I’d do it all over again.

While I never sought out notoriety, I have to admit that the respect of my peers is a true treasure. It doesn’t get any better than that.

So yes, I feel very honored today to find my name among other authors and elders whose work I respect. Makes me think that maybe my own work has been of some value to others along the way. That is a wonderful thought.
