About Patch and this Blog
-I'm known on the internet as Patch.
I have been a practising Hellenic polytheist for 4 years.

Before my life was taken up by looking at bacteria in blood and faeces (believe it or not, I actually chose this career), I was looking to bring about some important changes in my spiritual practice. For now this has … Continue reading
Yet another post as part of the Pagan Blog Project. Just in case the last few posts have not made this clear, spiritual cleanliness plays a large role in my regular spiritual practice. It ranges from taking a shower after intercourse before … Continue reading
This is an odd one, but I figured that if I am going to commit to doing this project for an entire year, some of these topics will need to be regular ol’ blog posts with convenient subject headings. Really, you can … Continue reading
I trust everybody has been enjoying this holiday season, whatever you may celebrate. I had a hectic yet enjoyable Christmas with my family. My youngest cousin insisted on showing me all of his presents and before I go on I just have … Continue reading
