1. What is essential for an altar?
2. What other books do you recommend for study of the craft? I'm actually very interested in the Strega Tradition and the Celtic Tradition.
3. My husband is Christian. How do I explain this to him (and possibly help him towards participation, if he wants) without damaging his Christian perspectives.
More stuff about me... I'm an English teacher in California. I am taking up a year and a day of study to decide if this is right for me (which I am relatively sure that it is), and hopefully I will get tenure during that time, so that I won't have to deal with the anti-pagan tendencies of the Conservative element of my school. I will probably be dealing with this all year, so any support that I get through this (and other) communities, will hopefully be quite helpful and fullfilling.
Thank you all for your help, well in advance.
