An exploration of narratives

While I lived on the road, traveling from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine, and zigzagging over all but five US States I blogged a lot. Thinking that the constant shifting of perspectives and world views would stop once I stopped traveling seems silly now. I am still encountering odd people with fascinating views and crazy ideas, only now they come to me. There is a never ending selection of weird events in the bay area and the people who have come to visit me at my home range from dreadlocked anarchist nomads to silicone valley venture capitalists. 

I want to capture not only my journey but the areas of exploration in which I constantly stumble upon new discoveries.







I love narrative. It took me ages to understand “this postmodern thing” with its “distrust of meta-narratives” and its lack of absolute truth and the paradigm of seeing our world in a “conflict of narratives”. 

Much of this blog will be an exploration of different narratives, their origins, their implications, the ways in which they conflict, and the crossroads at which they intersect. 


About Annika Mongan

As a born-again Christian minister I set out to convert Pagans. But through years of traveling and studying I became alienated from fundamentalism and found a new home in Witchcraft. Today I celebrate being born again and again, a lifelong cycle of transformation. A few years ago I founded an intentional Pagan community in California and am now in the process of networking and building an eco village. I love getting out into nature. During rainy seasons I am an avid mushroom hunter, in the summer I enjoy hiking, swimming, camping, and playing music around campfires. When I am not busy doing interfaith work or volunteering for too many events, I spend a lot of time studying and writing about religion. My writing can be found at Cross and Pentacle on and I write as the Born Again Witch on the Pagan channel at
