I suppose I should tell you a little where I stand with this stuff. First of all I am a Pagan and a Witch. I am not Wiccan.That's too much like an organized religion for my liking, which means that somewhere there is one person at the head of it who sees themself as being above everyone else. I have my own mind and do my own thing. Since I am not accepted by the Pagan community in the south of England because I am American, I work alone. People that reject someone else simply because of where they are from are not the sort of people I want to be around and they have nothing to teach me. It simply is a form of prejudice.
It's a shame people are still making movies that are so far from the truth. All it does is make Witchcraft "trendy". This is not a trend.
It is my belief that there is no black or white magic. It is simply the intent behind what a person is doing that determines whether it is good or bad, black or white. There are people who practice "black magic" but they seem to be concerned more with the physical than spiritual. That's just not my cup of tea.
I hope that helps, in case some of you thought I worship satan or something. Satan is a Christian invention, an entity created to blame anything evil on and to scare people into this new religion. Religions were created by man. I don't feel I need to have one. To read even more about this, you can go to this page.
Below are some of my favorite links to Pagan and Witchcraft sites. I am always (sometimes) adding something new here too, so keep checking back. Also, don't forget I change the page to fit the seasons and always have a few links to allow readers to find out about our celebrations if they don't already know. Enjoy.
Well, summer wasn't too bad. No searing heat like back home. It was nice. I especially liked that there was a lot of rain. The maple that always puts out yellow leaves that seem to glow in the dark just gave us green this year and there were no apples at all. Very strange.
The cows are out but I think they might be hiding up up on the hill because I harely ever see them anymore. That makes me sad. The tree that got struck by lightening a couple years ago just gave up not too long ago and just crumbled onto the ground. While they were clearing up the tree yesterday, the farmer and his guys built a dividing fence in the field. I can't imagine what they are going to do. Time will tell.
Twinkle the donkey and her mother escaped twice and came right to our house. I guess they were attracted to the grass and the gate was open. I called the farmer and told him we were holding them hostage because they're so cute. The farmer and his family were in Devon when I called so they had to try to find someone to come get them and take them back home. We had a good time talking to them and watching them. They really liked it here. That was a good day.
No word on the kidney thing. At the moment I have an incredibly painful case of bursitis in my right hip. I can't do much of anything. I am taking loads of anti-inflamatories and sleep is rare. I don't know what to do about it. Not real excited about having a big long needle shoved into my hip joint to extract the fluid. I can't remember what it's like to be pain free anymore.
My mom's house has been sold. There are bitter feelings with everyone. I only trust my niece and one of my brothers. I just want to forget the whole thing and most of them. Like a bad dream.
Anyway, happy autumn. Decorate your house! Go trick-or-treating! Just be safe and have a great time. This is my favorite time of year. Yours too?
