Every now and again I get an email from a witchy person (often someone new to my cyber home and/or to witchy living) who wants to know if I “ever blog about magic. Isn’t you blog about Paganism?” said the last individual who contacted me on the topic.
If we want to get technical, my blog is about Pagan culture—about Magaly Guerrero’s Pagan Culture, to be specific. If someone takes that into consideration, then they might notice that everything I share is a bit witchy (in a Magaly sort of way): I write about rejoicing in the magic of words, storytelling, loving hard and honestly, delighting in Nature, getting lost (and finding ourselves) in tales and poetry about life and death, and about smiling with our entire faces while rain kisses the soil soft and fresh…
This post is a good example of what I mean. Before receiving the email in question, I had titled this entry “You Aren’t Going Mad, this Is Déjà Vu… Again.” It would’ve perfectly described a post about moi, once again, merging my two blogs. Yes, I just did it. That’s the reason why you got a 45-posts update. Sorry for the yummy rush of Magalyness. I’m moving magalyguerrero.com to a different web host, and wanted to make sure all my posts were accessible while I’m taking the plunge… which won’t happen for a while… I apologize in advance for any dead links. I’ll take care of them as fast as I can.
So what does any of this have to do with magic, some might be wondering? Well, I waited for the New Moon before starting something that marks a new beginning. Also, I published this post at 5:13 PM because I believe 13 to be a lucky number.
Witchy living has nothing to do with turning every bit of magic we perform into an overtly ceremonial event; at least, that’s not true in my life. I’m a witchy woman; therefore, I always do things in witchy ways. Magic is everywhere. We just have to open our eyes. Open them again. And see what has always been there. Don’t believe me? Read all these “you might be witchy” ifs friends added to my Facebook wall. ;-)
New York City without light pollution
Yep, pure magic…
