I’m always starting over with this blogging thing. Long story short, things have been deleted, some things have been privatized. I managed to rematerialize a lost photo digitally. So all the pics are good, a lot of links are broken. Sorry! If something needs credit or you want it removed click the contact me link at the top and will rectify the situation.
Welcome to the cosmic void, a place of universal emptiness. It is the primordial void of space and time before the universe began and it is the ancient cauldron-womb of soul and spirit before the perceived separation. It is the still point of Being that is neither a beginning nor an ending, but is both at once. It is our woven red thread of Old Fate; the All that is, that was, and that will be. The quintessential spiral of life that is both physical and spiritual and it exists in a journey of perfect dynamic balance.
The cosmic void. A place of universal emptiness. Why did I give my website this name? Honestly I don’t know.
I started using it back in the early part of 2000. I was trying to think of a name for a little freebie website I had for my homepage, that contained news, bookmarks, and other info I used daily online. This was back before places like Google or Yahoo offered customized homepages. Then name literally just popped into my head, and I liked it. I had created other websites with different names, but this was different, it felt right. Little did I know then what it would turn into in terms of my website and in terms of my path in life.
I’ve been asked many times how I became a witch, or why did I choose witchcraft. I never have been able to explain it. I just don’t have a nice, concise, cookie cutter answer. In fact I didn’t choose it, there was no becoming. I just was. To me being a witch wasn’t a choice, it is not a religion to me. It is just what I am. I am witch.
I’ve tried to explain by sharing pieces of my history with people. When I do, when I explain just a little of my background to Pagans, they are never surprised that I am now a witch.
So here it is, my complete witchy background. I warn you it is long, and I would love it if more people would explain their background. To me it is fascinating.
In the beginning…
God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters…
Oh wait, I guess that is a little too far back…
What I really want to tell you about is my beginning; kinda of the story of my life with a strong emphasis on the magical.
Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…
A tale of a fateful trip. That started from this tropic port. Aboard this tiny ship…
Oh wait, that’s the wrong story too.
I do have a story to tell, and this story begins with my grandparents.
Sometimes an ending looks like a beginning and sometimes a beginning looks like an ending. It’s hard at times to determine which is which. Either way though makes little difference in the long run. What is meant to be is meant to be, and beginnings and endings cannot change fate.
I once heard that the obvious answer isn’t always correct and that the correct answer isn’t always easy. This truth is hard for me to recognize, yet I live by it anyway. Sometimes it is best to get out of your own way and let life happen. Emotions can sometimes be a distraction to the truth, and some people rather be distracted. I rather live in truth.
