Vacation and Aftermath

Before I get into the meat of this post, I wanted to share a little bit of what has been going on the past two weeks (and why I've been so quiet).  Basically, a year of in-law drama came to a head and burst.  There was crying and frustration and a period of two days where I was so upset and anxious that I didn't eat. It was fairly miserable, by which I mean really really miserable.

And once the big set of drama was finally calmed down and things seemed to be on the road to recovery, my future sister-in-law who is back in town started a huge fight with my fiance and claimed she was tired of all the drama... yes, she made to claim of there being too much drama in everyone's life by starting a huge poop storm right when things were finally getting better.

But in better news, I went out and got a ton of books to help with the witchy studies, which I have had no time to read so far.  I will admit, few of the books are actually directly witchy, but I think that they are good for building the support skills.

Anyway, on with the actual post.

Images of Witches in Popular Culture

Can I say that I love the above image?  I do so very much.  Yes, there are some cliché and unrealistic parts to it.  As we all know, real witches do not fly on broomsticks (at least not in the way depicted above).  But, look at what it is really depicted: an average older woman dressed comfortably with a knap sack and a kind face.  She doesn’t have the hat, but we all still know what she is.
