"They believe in a deeper spiritual connection between every thing around them and live to honor that. They seek to examine those connections to better understand the nature of their purpose in this life and also their individual role in something going further beyond that lifespan. The witch believes that they hold an inherent personal power, which can be strengthened through their belief and knowledge of the greater consciousness around them. They also believe that their power is a gift; a piece of something that already existed before them."

"A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving."

~Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.E.)

"In the end, I wonder if one of the most important steps on our journey is the one in which we throw away the map. In jettisoning the grids and brambles of our own preconceptions, perhaps we are better able to find the real secrets of each place; to remember that we are all extensions of our collective history."

~Loreena McKennitt

When owls call the breathless moon
In the blue veil of the night
The shadows of the trees appear
Amidst the lantern light

Who will go down to those shady groves
And summon the shadows there
And tie a ribbon on those sheltering arms
In the springtime of the year

The songs of birds seem to fill the wood
That when the fiddler plays
All their voices can be heard
Long past their woodland days

And so they linked their hands and danced
Round in circles and in rows
And so the journey of the night descends
When all the shades are gone

~The Mummer's Dance by Loreena McKennitt
