About Patch and this Blog
-I'm known on the internet as Patch.
I have been a practising Hellenic polytheist for 4 years.
- After following a re-con methodology for a number of years, I became unable to ignore the call to witchcraft and so here I am today exploring how this fits into my practice.
This blog primarily deals with devotional worship, Hellenic polytheism, pagan living and a whole lot of navel gazing.

I am back from my holiday! It was lots of fun, and all the travel (flights, taxis, left hand drive rental cars) was stress free despite all threats on the contrary. We somehow conveniently avoided scheduled airport strikes, hour long … Continue reading
My local pagan community (which I do plan on writing about at some point) hosts a little craft group on Sunday afternoons, to raise money for a big Pagan Pride event that it organises and runs. I go along when I can, … Continue reading
My favourite (and the most effective) way that the gods get me to notice them is by persistent external signs and omens. They usually get increasingly more obvious until I have to laugh and there can be no denying that … Continue reading
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
