These are sorts of themes this column will be dealing with—a perspective on Paganism from someone who has always lived inside of it, even without realizing it. I make no claims at expertise; I have never founded a new tradition, and while I have written some rituals and participated in many, many more, I don't consider myself any kind of authority. I hope this column will be useful and interesting despite just coming from an interested observer and believer.
I'm very interested in hearing from anyone who has questions or insights into second-generation (or beyond!) Paganism. If you have any questions or topics you'd like to see me take up, please let me know, either in the comments or via email.
