Doing a world of good (being an asshat)

I often find myself in arguments, discussions and debates. Witches love these! And it is not as much as we like to change other people’s minds, in fact, witches care little about other people’s minds and are mostly concerned about their own. Witches are self centered like that. It’s the same way that we don’t […]

Arguing with a squirrel

When I started writing this blog, I had a friend, who has been on the blogosphere for some time give me some pointers. I explained to him that I was looking at it as a journal of thoughts that one day I may look onto them and laugh at myself, much in the same way […]

Hash tag trigger warning

It seems to me that we, as humans, spend a considerable time to define ourselves and to which group we belong, something I raised before in Cats, wasps and bullshit But while the occupation is a quite normal human behaviour pattern, modern social media has made this meditative pastime into a rather annoying in your face […]

Beware of the Florist!

But you do like flowers, right? If you like flowers, you have to be a florist, how could you not be a florist if you like flowers, all florists like flowers! This does sound a bit stupid, right? That is because it is a really silly way of reasoning. You wouldn’t expect someone to make […]

My Lack of Respect

Blind justice

It is said that Faith will help a man or woman through hard times; to find the wisdom to know what he can change and accept what he cannot not. Faith is affirmed in good times and tested in bad times. But it seems that having faith in the gods is often more easy than […]

It’s OK, you don’t have to believe

Last week I met Larry. Larry was sitting at the bar next to me and as it happens, sometimes people strike up a conversation. It can start of with the weather, the music that is playing at the bar, or just the latest headline in the papers. I can’t remember which subject started our conversation, […]

It is a kind of magic

Wiccans like to  think that outside in the mundane world, magic in itself could contribute making this planet a nicer place to live on. As a wiccan, I feel connected to the earth and nature, through which the voices of the God and Goddess speak to me. if we look at everything that makes us cringe about […]
