    About Breakups

    The thing about breakups is that you’re never really out of each other’s life. It’s an illusion to think that you can just sever ties (if that’s what you were hoping for) and then… Poof! No more connection. It never happens like that. When I made the decision, and then the subsequent announcement that I was […]

  • On Leaving

    On Leaving

    Something broke today: a levee on the inside. My heart, tight and clenched for days, softened. And when it did, I knew… I have to leave ADF. I spoke the words out loud, and they sounded right.

The Solitary Druid Fellowship, an extension of Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF) is live and running at This has been a labor of love, and would not have been […]

  • Serving Solitary Pagans: An Experiment in Liturgy

    Serving Solitary Pagans: An Experiment in Liturgy

    In September of this year, I submitted an application to start my own ADF protogrove for solitary Pagans. I planned on calling it, Sojourner’s Protogrove. Protogroves are the precursor to fully-chartered groves within the ADF organization, and their main responsibility (as with groves) is to provide public rituals for each of the eight High Days […]
