    Hails from Avalonian Shores!

    I am Nazrath, and I foremost consider myself a poet. Due to my unyielding love of Early Modern English, I doth affect its mannerisms wherever I am able. I hath oft been told this canst verily cause the utmost of problems for less English literate readers, and as such 'twouldst be best if I was advised as to whether this is something that shalt also be a problem in these electronic chambers.

    To move on to subjects more informative, I am a compulsive scholar and an experimental musician, and I also am a keen historian with an intense love of swordplay. I abhor television and the majority modern society, but to begin lamentation in such areas wouldst lead unto a rather ostentatiously lengthy introduction, ergo I shalt move swiftly on.

    My discovery of Odinism came after a long and technically ongoing period of studying the role of spiritualism and morality within differing religious or philosophical frameworks. My initial dislike of Abrahamic faiths led me through Satanism to varying strains of Buddhism, Daoism, and Hinduism ere I returned to European methods. This initial external branching was in all likelihood due to my research of Hellenic and Egyptian myths in my pre-adolescence, along with my world travel during my teenage years.

    I re-read my English legends to begin with, familiarising myself once more with the old folk tales one usually takes for granted, ere beginning to look at Druidry. I found the veil of Wiccanism hard to pass through, but once I managed to specify the proper criteria, I didst learn much that, to mine own ear, still sounded foreign. It didst remind myself too heavily of a lake or shire, when I hath always at heart felt akin towards forests or mountains.

    Then, I realised my problem all along, which was that I was looking outward. I researched my family name and discovered my mixed Norman and Frisian heritage along with my family legacies of which I shalt not detail here, but suffice to say it didst finally bring my studies to consider Odinism, which hath seemed rather intuitive to myself in a way that Jung wouldst probably ascribe to archetypal merit. I tend towards a metaphorical approach when reading texts as so best to distill their meaning, and meld something of mine own philosophies with what I learn.

    Mine patron deities art Wodanaz and Forseti, mine hereditary runes othila and raitho, and I hold special reverence for the black sun as an Odinic representation of "Void" in a Zen sense. These art personal ties to avatars and concepts that hath been inexorably showed in mine own experiences through the web of Wyrd, and mine studies hath much to encompass henceforth...
