Tap down and gather together all ye merry crafters Gather the herbs and vines and hang them from the rafters Kick a boot cheerily and sway thou wicked hips Grab the wisest merry-man and kiss him on the lips Ring the bell and call the cat then spark thy candle bright Sip a witchy midnight brew on this winters night.
“There is a little witch is every woman” No truer words were ever spoken. We are all daughters of the moon, born of fire, water, earth, air, and spirit. We are sister witches one and all. A woman is magickal by her natural design. We are intuitive, courageous, powerful beings. We are the seductive temptresses, the givers of life, the healers, […]
Here Chickie, Chickie!
Ain’t it the Truth though!
Words are capricious little sprites. When I say to another soul, “I am a witch” there are any number of impressions one might embrace depending upon your background, your present and past realities, your geographic location, and, your personal emotional response to the word “witch” based on your educational exposure and perhaps your religious teachings.

When you lose a child, their friends naturally become your own treasures, your beloved “adopted” jewels. Your deceased child’s “best friend” is especially precious to your heart. This July, I began to have thoughts and concerns about our departed daughter Emmy’s best friend, Amber. Thoughts of her stabbed my mind and my heart every few minutes. I couldn’t […]

Here’s an immortal poem that I want to share with you, brought to my attention by my late grandfather, a wise man, if ever there was one: “If” by Rudyard Kipling. If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself […]
What does a wordsmith really have to work with? Vowels, consonants and phrases and unpublished works in phases. * No lurid platitudes allowed, he has long ago since vowed… Lovingly crafted spinnings of yearning yarns, tales of a lone acrobat storming barns! * He dreams of plucking heartstrings, of visions floating on bright wings and taking […]
She has hoed her rows, been baked by sun Her back is bent Her prowess lent No time to cry With tears to dry Tasks and labor Love to savor Plant and sew Her seeds shall grow Reap the harvest Wait for snow Her cauldron brew, a hearty blend Of Summer days and Winter winds […]

Cat-style impersonator: I’m not saying anything about the next one!
Most people, myself included at times, think that everyone else is telepathic and should read or sniff or smell what they(or I) want. To tell the truth, most people suck at this! Therefore some individual has come up with an entirely novel idea, which might work, if everybody joined in. Which will never happen, of […]
Each day during this dark time of the year, I rise long before dawn and light a single candle before I do anything else. As I light it, I plea for a day that is laced with kindness. I plea for love and patience, for understanding, for meaning, for spiritual guidance, for peace, for thoughtfulness, […]
I’m as nervous as a cat at a hyenas’ wedding! Ten trillion thing to take care of and all of them have to be finished yesterday. You know how that goes, right? And I don’t even know the exact date that we’re supposed to move. Well, I’ll know when I start seeing camels, I suppose. […]
The way of the crone witch is one of great responsibility. She is an elder, it is upon her to teach the old ways, the ways of nature and honor. She drinks from the chalice of life thirstily, her life blood is freedom. She dances upon the path merrily, she is unapologetic for her passions. She is set apart […]
Where’d he go? Where’s the rest of him? Or: ‘”Stop playing ostrich, Harry!”
Forget the doctor, home remedies really help!
She is wise She walks with tender knowing She is old Not as old as she will become She is love, power, sorrow, passion She is kind in all of her ways Her heart blazes with care, she feels beautiful Like warm earth beneath the cold foot Her eyes are holy lights Lay flowers before her […]

Brrr, I’m shivering in my soul. After almost a decade of being jobless and seven years on the street, I am finally going to have to start doing a proper job as logistics manager again. Frankly, I am not looking forward to it. The freedom of the street is so alluring, to be able to […]
Salem: The Black Cat window shopping for birdies My Alter The Alter table came from rubbish, I freely admit Yet, after some clever crafting, it has no less than a high priestess fit It is round, and ever willing to bend It holds Magick and Wonders that never end Upon it, I cast my peaceful ways Lit candles […]
The Virgin, The Mother, The Crone It has been said that the life of a woman (and some special men) is divided into three phases. The youthful years of the tender virgin, the reproductive or sexually potent years of the mother/matron, and the wise years of the crone. This witch considers all to be equally magickal, […]

Read all about it! The Christmas star was witnessed by millions and even recorded on video and pictures for all posterity. Why the second coming has decided to wear clogs is a mystery though(or possibly lederhosen). Asses flocked out in droves to watch this amazing spectacle and a stable has been prepared, just in case!
