I am not of a tradition.
Not by choice, I just supposed I haven't run into a lot who were in traditions. I have a fascination with this.
When I hear the word 'coven', I think of family. I think of integrity, of devotion, of loyalty and chivalry. I think of people who say what they mean and mean what they say, all with their full hearts. I think of the ideals of honesty and love, sharing and kindness. I think of having a group around a hearth and a home full of love and acceptance. All this love, all in praise of Ancient and Wise gods.
Am I a hopeless romantic? And idealist?
Maybe. Maybe not.
