Back when I was a kid, I had a horrible bully in my neighborhood. All he did was poke fun at me and this other kid because we played with Barbie dolls. I know what you’re thinking: big deal, right? Kids are cruel. Yah, but you don’t say that until you’re no longer a kid. Anyhow, my entire family was gathering back in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. I don’t remember the occasion – I think it was an Anniversary or a birthday or something. But I remember the moment so specifically – I found my great grandmother alone in
Long, long ago, in a land far, far away, I was trained in a Coven. Most of my readers know that already, right? The fact is: I love Covens.

There is no such thing as a permanent banishing technique. At least, not where spirits are concerned. People? Yes, people I can get rid of in a heartbeat – just pretend to be really clingy and needy.

The other day (actually, last Tuesday), I was in the mood for a bit of magic. I had a goal to work on, and for the spellcraft I was brainstorming, a key would’ve been perfect. I love the look and feel of old skeleton keys. So I went on a hunt in the basement – I could’ve sworn I had one back in the early 2000’s that I stashed for safekeeping. (Random tip: if you want to banish something from your life forever, put it in a “safe place” so you’ll never forget. You’re guaranteed to forget. LOL)
