Hello & Blessed Be!
I am Selene. I've been walking the path for 24yrs now, mostly solitary but recently with a coven. Guess you guys can figure out I qualify for cronehood, young crone, but crone never the less. I'm lucky enough to live on my own little farm where I have plenty of room and privacy to conduct my rituals and work my spells in peace--mostly. More about that in a minute. I'm single after my ex left 12 yrs ago and my adult son lives with me and helps on the farm. He is also Pagan. So I don't have any negative influences on my magick. We co-exist with raccoons, opossums, squirrels, hawks, one giant crane, and multiple deer. And therein lies the rub (that's an old expression for you young ones-lol) because today begins deer season. It was 6:30am when I started this msg but I've already had to cast the 'puter aside to go outside & confront hunters on my land! They know they're not supposed to be here! My land is posted & I have 2 horses who live in their pasture (where the deer like to roam) so I have concerns about their safety. Not to mention my own. That shotgun blast was close! I took my own pistol outside (for safety) and yelled at them to get off my property! No more shots but who knows where they went. Best go check my horses. Here's hoping I don't get shot-lol. One of the many "benefits" to living way out in the country, close to nature, and closer to the God and Goddess. Blessings to you all,
Selene, the Witch of the Western Woods
