The long and short of it – leave a comment below with a witch related quote, and I’ll pair it with one of my photographs, and post the result the following week. It can be a phrase from your favorite witchy author, a short spell or ritual, or a saying that really resonates with you. If you’re a blogger, be sure to leave a link as well, so I can give you a shout out. If you can’t think of anything this week, no worries – I’ll post results and ask for more quotes each Wednesday in May.
Thank you to everyone who has provided amazing words to pair with my pictures – I’m having so much fun with! I’m also pinning all the graphics on one of my Pinterest boards – please feel free to share them! Be sure to leave your own favorite quote in the comment section, and tune in again next week to see what I came up with.
Now, on to the graphics!
Noelle Kelly (check out her blog HERE) –
“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.” ~ Stephen King, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption
Three from Iris Hawkins –
“Magic is the art of causing changes to occur in consciousness, in conformity with will.” ~ Dion Fortune
“We have a tradition that comes from the first millennium B.C. somewhere else, and we’re handling that. It has not turned over and assimilated the qualities of our culture, and the new things that are possible, and the new vision of the universe. It must be kept alive. The only people that can keep it alive are artists of one kind or another. [The artist’s] …function is the mythologization of the environment and the world.” ~ Joseph Campbell, Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth — ‘The First Storytellers’
“A ritual is the enactment of a myth.” ~ Joseph Campbell, Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth — ‘The First Storytellers’
