EVERYTHING’S COMING UP Witches
What’s the Goddess trying to tell me, luvvies? Last month I met LuAnn, whose great, great, great etc. grandmother was hung as a witch on an island off Maine.
This week I accidentally flipped to this old drawing in an 1891 book of poems by Whittier. The poem’s about the daughter of an actual 1600s MA woman hung for witchcraft. Go HERE to read it.
BTW,the book about Luann and her grandmother, The Wednesday Night Witches? Metacool. In places I laughed til I cried. The writing was fresh and exciting. I'm not so sure however how much the author (Lee Nichols) knows about Wicca -- she has the Evil stuff rising up from inside the Earth!
