#AtoZChallenge W is for Witch

I am a witch. It took a long time for me to accept this label. I’ve always loved the romantic notion of a witch, I lapped up the pop culture when I was younger (Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Morticia Addams), and I read books about witches whenever I can. Now I am even beginning to include witch characters in my own novels, and they are very different to how I would have imagined them ten years ago. Being a witch is about working with Mother Nature, feeling the natural energy that is all around us, and accepting my place in the world between darkness and light. Mine is a world of shadows, cloaked in the normality of family life.

I recently told my 5 year-old daughter that I am a witch. She said I was telling porky pies (that’s lies, if you don’t understand my native talk). I reminded her that I have a cauldron and a wand in our living room, and that I am learning about natural herbs and remedies for daily health care. She simply replied that if I was a “real witch,” then I could wave my wand and make the house magically clean itself, so that I could stop complaining about it to her and her sister. Enough said!

    Your 5- year old is hilarious! She sounds like a girl with a mind of her own for sure. That was funny…

    Haha! Loved the story with your little girl.
    PS. I have a friend that’s a High Priestess and she still hasn’t gotten her wand to clean her house yet!

  3. I used to date a male witch back in the day – the most exciting time of my life! I tried to be a witch too – I wasn’t very good at it, but it gave me plenty of material for stories.

    I love the thought of oneness with mother nature, sensitivity to the movement of energy in the natural world. Of course I like the thought of a magic wand to do the housework too 😛

    Don’t children really get to the heart of the matter, magic! I’d be one too if all it took was a magic wand to get rid of the house work! Sounds like a really worthwhile thing to be doing – the real witch stuff. All the best.
