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 kick started the lunar month (well, technically ended the old one) with Hekate’s Deipnon. I cleansed my new flat for the first time, and offered her myrrh incense and the cherry mead which I only give to her and the ancestors. The … Continue reading
