Being Alone on your Path?

Something I've been thinking about a lot lately, is the frustration I feel being alone on my path. I'm in the closet (so far back I can see Narnia) with little hope of coming out anytime soon. Health and finances have made it necessary that hubby, daughter and I live with my folks, who would be intolerant of a pagan. They are good people, and I have a good relationship with them, and wouldn't want to risk losing that because I believe differently then they do.

My husband is pretty much non-religious, and most of my friends are the same. Not having someone who gets what I'm going through, or looking for is frustrating. I have met one or two people, through random meetings (once in a bookstore in the metaphysical section) but those never really got off the ground. They seemed more interested in shocking people with their "witchiness". Hm.

Anyway, I wondered... anyone else have the same frustration? It's not so much that I want to shout it from the rooftops -- I just would love to go to a public ritual, or buy a book I don't have to keep in a drawer. It would be nice to talk to someone about things that I've gone through in my search.
