Craft Your Own

They call it witchcraft on purpose.

An act or process of shaping something as you go, not accepting a readymade.

A sturdy, lovely boat to carry you over the broad, wild expanse of mind, life, time, space and all possible universes.

How exciting to claim witchcraft as one’s path. Exciting and responsible.

Claim it. Name it. People died for it. Now it is yours.

What do you choose to do with it?
