Syncretic solitary Witch, mother and wife wishing to share with others of like-mind. I enjoy herbcrafting, wortcunning and reading about esoteric/occult subjects. Known to keep a few forensic titles on hand as well. I have an innate love for Mother Earth and all nature (thanks to not only my witchy side, but my Native American side) and am strongly animistic. In short, the beliefs I hold are my own and I truly walk my own moonlight path.
