Seeing the Unseen

"We look to ... the edges. There's a lot of edges, more than people know. Between life and death, this world and the next, night and day, right and wrong ... an' they need watchin'."

Terry Pratchett, The Wee Free Men

I grew up at the edge of a wood, in a house at the edge of a town at the edge of the water. I attended a school which stood on the edge of a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. I spent my childhood and teenage years walking the water's edge and the paths between trees. With the help of stories and a forest full of spirits, I grew up with one foot in the otherworld, always hovering at the edge of so-called reality.

And this is what it is to be a witch, to live at the edges and inhabit the in-between places until we learn to dwell in many worlds simultaneously, to see many truths layered atop another, to hold within ourselves apparent dualities. Each witch navigates the edges in her own way, and works with her realities toward different outcomes. Some to heal, some to create, some to destroy. There are as many ways to be a witch as there are witches.

I strive to see the unseen, to give it form and voice so others can experience its wonder. This is the purpose of A Witch's Path.
