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.
