Since Samhain of 2004 I have done this, first as a inside newsletter and the as a online magazine. On Samhain of 2008 I switched to the present interview format and this proved to be the most popular version.
Often I hear people complain that there are no near by Pagans or activities So it has been for all of my 30 years of practice But even though somewhat isolated, now with health and mobility problems brought on by age, and exposure to Agent Orange in my time as a Marine in Vietnam back in 66 and 67.
I have always found a ways to interact with first the Wiccan community, and now with a variety of other communities. First was by snail mail and magazines that I wrote to and for. Then by E-mail online forums and then with ACTION. So even living on a five mile dead end highway, in the middle of the desert, does not stop me from interacting with Pagans in several parts of the world.
