All Hallow's Tale

Halloween Party
Welcome to the Halloween Kingdom of a very special witchie woman... She has been waiting patiently through all the seasons of the year, stirring slowly.... slowly.... her little cauldron filled with special goodness... and a touch of spider eggs, toad venom, and wildflower root... (just for spice)...
During the day... she plods along happily (or not) to and fro her normal routines... She masquerades as a teacher, a mother, a daughter... but inside she is truly magical, surrounded by creatures from the forest, creatures she has healed ( a la the enchanted woman in Thomasina), and creatures who are naturally wounded and drawn to her special, soothing touch... Oh, yes... the woman is a veritable Power in her own lifetime!

Friends sample her charms, and they come away thirsting for more. She lights candles on the weekends, and the heady aromas move through the enchanted cottage where she lives in her heart... For you see, she is captive in a home not her own... a place where she lives in the flesh, but not in the spirit...


Occasionally, she produces special brews and potions for her family, who eat these delicacies unawares, thinking they are pots of simmering stews or strawberry jams. Good news! All who sample her delights are also blessed with some of the true magic of home cooking.... LOVE.

So for now, she curls up with a good book, a glass of icy brook water, and her dreams.... but just wait until the witching hour draws near, and see what awaits inside her magical velvet bag!!!

Your link from Vanessa's comments doesn't work without typing it in by hand - you might want to go back and leave a new working link so more folks will come visit.
I loved the movie Thomasina - that's one I need to add to my "to buy on DVD" list.
I, too, masquerade most of the time as a "muggle" - but that's okay, our magic shines through.
