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

This blog primarily deals with devotional worship, Hellenic polytheism, pagan living and a whole lot of navel gazing.

I am one of these people of the opinion that if it looks good, tastes good, sounds good or smells good then it is worthy of my gods. They delight in beauty. Therefore, every time I unpack my shrine items … Continue reading
If you have ever read previous blog entries here, you’ll know that in the last few months I have experienced somewhat of an upheaval in terms of religious practice, approach and methodology. Since christmas I have ‘spread my wings’ so … Continue reading
