Memories in a Handful of Stones

These three stones were sent to me by a friend, a friend who lives on the east coast– a magickal, creative, saucy little witch.  She brought her special energy to all that she did, everything she touched, from her whimsical blog full of recipes for Pagan holidays to the connections she made in the Pagan world on a variety of social sites. She was loved and respected among us all.

I forgot exactly what the circumstances were that surrounded the stones and why she sent them, but that really isn’t important; I treasure them.  I keep them in a beautiful sterling silver dish that is a leaf, a gift from my son.  The stones and the leaf are perfect together.

This lovely lady didn’t pass on, as you may have thought when you started reading this post, which sounds somewhat like a eulogy.  I guess it is a eulogy in a way; it’s memorializing, remembering, and honoring the spirit of a Sister-Witch who no longer exists.  The lovely lady simply decided to take another path in life, she went down a fork in the road, veering away from all the places she had been to have new adventures in a new life.  I miss the magickal, creative, saucy little witch; but I’d like to think that some of her energy still exists here, in these stones, and in the memories I carry.

I wish her well.  I hope that her explorations unearth new friends and positive connections.  I hope that she is happy in the life she’s chosen and the path she’s following.

  1. Oh what a bittersweet story – and you are right, we can mourn and grieve these types of things as if they had actually passed the veil. I hear you, as I have had similar things happen to me, and I even have physical items that some of them have created when they were connected to the all that is in that more innocent or carefree space. Hugs!!

    1. Lisa…I feel like we’ve known each other forever through the magick of the internet, though we’ve never spoken, and we’ve never met. I just wanted you to know that I am blissfully aware of your energy in a natural way on an almost daily basis. There are very few people in this world that I feel I’ve genuinely connected with, but you are one of those rare gems…thank you.

      1. Wow – I am feeling so HONORED right now! I know what you mean about the internet changing our world perception of who we know – and I cannot agree more! I absolutely love your energy! One of these day (it will be in a warm season no doubt) I may visit in-person your neck of the woods (or plains hehe)! 🙂
