7. Beliefs - Patronage and other deeper relationships

First I'll say that I do not have a patron relationship with any deity. I never have. There are gods I am closer to than others, and I am a long-term devotee of Aphrodite, but she is not my patron. I suspect I'm not someone who is prone to patronage. Partly this is the mostly-headblind thing (it's so much work just to get a glimmer!) but partly I think it's that I'm just not that focused. (It's amazing to me that I found a life partner--Dan--who I never get bored with.) And for what I am supposed to be doing, it's probably better if I have a broader view.

Yeah, I suck at these however-many-days memes.
