I started this blog as a means to record historical and cultural information relevant to my reconstructionism attempts. Inspired by Germanic and Celtic reconstructionists, I try to dig up historical pagan information about my Central European heritage to bring into my own little corner of the pagan world. My main focus are the South Germanic/Austrian and Hungarian cultures per my known ancestor’s origins (and is the source of this blog’s title, as a reference to the Danube river they once lived by). As I live in the US, there are also posts regarding local deities and customs of where I live, as in my opinion it’s disrespectful to ignore the land one lives on in favor of a romanticized one existing far away in space and time.
However, I’ve decided to make this join the ranks of numerous pagan blogs and combine the research with personal posts (categorized as Reflections). This is now a blog about my journey overall, and what I think about it. Recon is my primary “religious” method of discovery and discussion, but UPG will occasionally be shared in posts where it’s appropriate. Research vs. UPG will be made clear in my posts through the citations at the bottom. If you are unable to access the cites or would like a copy of a particular .pdf, send me a comment with an email and I’ll try to help you out.
