“I Am So Proud of All of Us,” she said. And I smiled…

…the smile sprouted out of my eyes, spread to my lips, and took root in my witchy heart.

Yes, my Luvs, that’s how I feel after Witches in Fiction 2016: Spelling Healing into a Rotting World. I chose the theme because my body has been a bastard for a while now… and because the world is being poisoned—literally and figuratively—by bastard(ish) people and situations. I was looking for a way to share my frustration and outrage, but your posts gave me more than that. We gave each other so much more than I expected. And for that, like Oma Linda, I am proud of us.

Thanks so much for being you, and for helping me do the same… especially when times get this tough on my flesh and bones. I promise to pay it forward, give the same back, send it around…

*three deep breaths…

…okay, two more*

love-baby-crow-by-magic-love-crowI am re-sharing “Love”, by Magic Love Crow, because every time I look at that HUGE smile, I find myself smiling too. I can’t help it. It must be the teeth, and the heart… and Stacy’s energy.
