Being a Witch is Political

With the current climate, following yet another murder of a black man (Rest In Power, George Floyd) by police in the United States, there has been a rise in witches, pagans, heathens and polytheists of all stripes posting on social media in support of the victim and of movements like Black Lives Matter. With that…

Introspection

« And this is what comes from dabbling; I mean you can’t practice witchcraft while you look down your nose at it. » – Aunt Jet Owens, Practical Magic. I’ve been quiet, of late, mainly because I’ve been thinking long and hard about the direction I want to go into with my Witchcraft, only to realize that it’s been 8 years…

Snow…

I know I mentioned yesterday that today was going to be even colder. Well, we woke up to this… At least, it’s nice and cozy indoors. But I would be lying if I were trying to claim that I didn’t prefer seasonal weather and temperatures to this. We can normally expect at least some snow…

Cold and Rain

I’m Canadian, so, here’s me, talking about the weather. Today is cold and rainy, but will be colder tomorrow. Despite all this, it definitely feels like spring is here, just taking its time to warm the weather up. I’ve been out in a T-shirt, skirt and flip flops for Walpurgisnacht, but it looks like this…

April’s Produce Arrivals for Southwestern Quebec

Note: I will be attempting to post these once a month, on the first of the month, so that people with similar growing seasons can look into what is currently in-season, and therefore, less pricey to buy. I am a little late, this month, because I had to compile the information on an Excel sheet….

Ill Bird

Wednesday evening, the Meadmaster and I were watching Schitt’s Creek on Netflix and relaxing on the couch, when I heard The Feathered Terror start making pained noises in her cage. I looked over, and she seemed to be straining to poop, repeatedly, crying in pain, and desperately trying to pick at her cloaca with her…

More Pandemic Musings

I didn’t originally plan on making this a stream-of-consciousness, personal journal type blog. This was supposed to include interesting posts on my budding practice as an animist witchcraft practitioner with French Canadian, French, Norse and Gaulish influences, but it is what it is, for now. We’re opening windows pretty much daily. Our windows are all…

Welcome, to The World of e-Readers

I have always said loud and proud that I would never give up actual physical books. There is nothing like the smell, feel and look of a real book. No e-reader could ever give me the same satisfaction as holding a book. Well… In these uncertain times, when your Amazon order could be further delayed…

Devotions in This Time of Isolation

I’m not sure if I have mentioned it anywhere, but I work in the local healthcare system as an administrative agent. Basically an office clerk. I’m also in the best position to be well-informed on the situation that is currently shaking not only the country where I live, but the entire world, since I work…
