(Why are you excited?)
So kind of you to ask!
I’m excited because today I’m having a witchCRAFTing party. Much–too much–of my life over the past several years has been in service of scientific/rational pursuits. Honestly, it makes me cranky. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVElovelove science, I love nursing. Sometimes, though, it has the unhappy effect of making me suspicious and skeptical. There’s a certain amount of skepticism that’s normal. If we take everyone at face value, there are all kinds of crazy ass nutty buddy things going on out there (you know, like “legitimate vs illegitimate rape”). When I’m too steeped in it, though, and out of balance with the arts, I lose the ability to see possibilities, and Wicca is all about possibility.
Today I take steps to rectify this oversight and get in touch with my inner Picasso (at least I can pass off my half-arsed attempts at art as an attempt to emulate Picasso…I like blue, and I’m sure everything is going to come out cubey). I invited all kinds of people to come over, Pagan and non-Pagan alike. The coveners in particular are coming to make stuff for fundraising at PPD (Pagan Pride Day), everyone else is invited to just hang out and be crafty.
And we’re going to watch some of my most favorite awesomely bad witch-themed movies. Teen Witch? The Craft? Practical Magic? Oh yes, yes, this is totally happening.
I’ll try to remember to post pictures later.
First, time to vacuum up all the cat hair…
