True Blood

Hello all! Wow. Again - I disappeared. Haha I tend to do that do I not?

So, this time around I'd LOVE to get into a few things. First of which, my recovery - then I'll move onto Witches Weekly and I'd like to end with a discussion on the new TV Series True Blood.

I'd like to think I have fully recovered from my Wisdom Teeth extraction. I still have two holes in the back of my mouth (the other two were stiched up - no holes left) - but I've been told that will fill within time... For the first few days I had a horribly hard time chewing anything! Which was beneficial for my finger nails. I have a horrible habit of biting my nails - impossible to do if you can't chew though. So, I've been babying my nails recently - trying with great struggle not to bite them now that I can chew again.

Moving on to Witches Weekly:
What is one of your own personal creative elements that you like to add to rituals? Something that is uniquely yours.
I don't think I have done enough of my own personal rituals or group rituals to fully answer this question. Any rituals I have taken part in - the only creative thing from me ever brought into a circle has been my own energy. Although we are all connected each persons energy is unique. That is about as creative as I get...

Have you all been keeping up with the new TV series popping up on television lately? I added a new show to my list called True Blood. At first I must mention I was a bit skeptical on this show - and sure I think I may still be... This show is a little cheesy. It brings to life the idea of Vampires living side by side with humans. I think one of the only things that keeps me interested is the ability to replace the word Vampire with pagan, witch, lesbian, etc and you are living in present day United States (as this show is set in the US). You have a culture doing all it can to survive in an uneducated, bias world.
I was extremely exited when I heard the follow dialogue between the two main characters of this TV Series. It's probably the best way I would every explain magic(k) to anyone. In fact, I have used something similar to this scenario to try an explain my idea of magic(k) - hence my excitement to see it in the show.

Bill Compton: I have no heart-beat. I have no need to breathe. There are no electrical impulses in my body. What animates you no longer animates me.
Sookie Stackhouse: What does animate you then? Blood? How do you digest it then if nothing works?
Bill Compton: Magic?
Sookie Stackhouse: Oh, come on Bill! I may look naive but I'm not, and you need to remember that.
Bill Compton: You think that it's not magic that keeps you alive? Just 'cause you understand the mechanics of how something works, doesn't make it any less of a miracle...which is just another word for magic. We're all kept alive by magic, Sookie. My magic's just a little different from yours, that's all.

Well, thats all the intelligent conversation I have to share for today. Until next time. Slán go fóill

Brightest blessings.
As always, I love reading your blog posts. I have tended to slip a little on posting every day, but I have had so much that I have been doing all at once but I have added a new index link to my 'blog of shadows' for 'Thought of the Day' type posts that I think you will find helpful and enlightening.

Have a great week.
