I consider myself heathen at core although I have studied in-depth many other paths. I am not religious at all, my family line has seen enough war and violence over the generations to kill any religion but I do believe in folk and the way of life they hold dear. I do not however consider myself Asatru or belong to any of the ego led politics so prevalent within such organizations today, a far cry from the original ideas of Svenbjorn Beinteinsson's and his Ásatrúarfélag, the Icelandic heathen organization. I am not a neo-pagan nor do I regard myself as folkish as this has attracted so many undesirable elements best kept out of our tradition. Most of my friends are women whom I share intellectual discussions with and frith. My men friends tend in general to be ex-military combatants types or those who live with a warrior based ethos. I am extremely loyal to kin and kindred, especially those I consider my extended family.
