Sorry I didn't post anything this weekend, it got kinda hectic over here, but we had fun. Went shopping and got some new summer tops, got all the easter shopping done, decorated our eggs (there is an awesome tutorial on how to do silk pattered eggs here and it really works! We had a lot of fun). And then on Sunday my dad and I took my Monkeyman to the classic car swapmeet. Hundreds of classic cars and classic car part and accessory vendors. We have a '65 mustang that we're fixing up so we got a ton of ideas and some upholsterers numbers. It was a great weekend!
Now on to business!
Magaly over at Pagan Culture is being kind enough to host this little get together, so here is my contribution to Witches in Fiction.
My Favorite Non Alive Person (or A Tribute to Granny Weatherwax).
Here's my Granny wisdom for the day:
Granny Weatherwax had never heard of psychology and would have no truck with it even if she had. There are some arts too black even for a witch. She practised headology - practised, in fact, until she was very good at it. And though there may be some superficial similarities between a psychiatrist and a headologist, there is a huge practical difference. A psychiatrist, dealing with a man who fears he is being followed by a large and terrible monster, will endeavour to convince him that monsters don't exist. Granny Weatherwax would simply give him a chair to stand on and a very heavy stick.
This one helps to remind me that sometimes, in this world of over evaluated second guessing, that my instincts are something to trust and be valued. Even sometimes acted upon. The 'rational' world of today wants us to believe that there is nothing beyond our basic sense. Everything else is explainable and simple. As a witch I have to agree with Granny and if I think there's a monster I'm going to get my own chair and a very big stick.
