The other day, during a friendly phone call, I was posed a question that I’d not thought about in a long while. The question was not startling. I’ve been asked this before. But it caused me some thought on this new occasion. The question: is Witchcraft dead? There were other implications behind the question: is magic weaker? Are the results not of the same level as they once were?
I received well over 50 emails in response to my post “A Witch’s Words of Wisdom.” I had no idea it would be so popular. But people apparently love that deep-ish shish, because almost all of those 50 feedback emails had one thing in common: they asked for more. So, without further adieu, here is more.
When I think of “words of wisdom,” I think of old adages that have been passed down through time. Things your grandmother would say, for example. Tidbits of advice that, when followed, made life easier, and hardship more manageable. So I thought – why not talk a little bit about some of the things my Elders taught me? And then it occurred to me that all of the words of wisdom I live by don’t necessarily come from my Elders.
Okay, I just have to say it right up front: I love this book. Dawn Rae Downton delivered a great modern mini-compendium of things we can do to get … well, vengeance (among other things). You have to check out The Little Book of Curses and Maledictions for Everyday Use.
Question from a regular blog reader: Where are all your posts on the magical experiments that you’ve done/are doing? When I first started this blog way back in the day, I had a bunch of posts up on magical experiments. Usually, they were about the process that I went through to get my results, and then a good old-fashioned “field report” about the results from the spellcraft.
