I have always been a rather reclusive, reserved sort of person and, probably due to being raised in a non-religious household where being religious or spiritual in any way was viewed with suspicion, I have been especially shy about telling others about my religious and spiritual path. This is why I have never tried to seek out other Pagans in my area. This is also why I don't reveal my last name or the city I live in, and use a profile photo that doesn't show my face very clearly on this blog. I don't want just anyone to be able to find out that I'm a Pagan and a Druid.
But many times I have wished that I knew other Pagans (in person, not just online). It gets hard doing things by myself. I don't if knowing other Pagans would really make things all that much easier, but at least we could compare notes, right?
Today, for no apparent reason (other than perhaps I was procrastinating about studying), I sat down and typed "British Columbia pagans" into Google. I had only glanced through the first few listings on the results page when I discovered a listing on Witchvox for a Pagan group at my university. I am not kidding when I say that I nearly fell off my chair. The page doesn't seem to have been updated for over a year, so I'm not sure if they're still active.
Still, the question remains: Should I contact this group? Do I even want to? I think that I do want to, and yet at the same time the idea terrifies me. Readers, what do you think?
