Am I a witch? I don’t know




“Am I a witch? I don’t know. That’s what they call me. They say it’s because I follow the rhythms of the earth, honor the seasons, dance under the moon and seek the ancient herbal wisdom of our ancestors. “Folk Lore, poppycock, myths,” they say as they sneer at the rosemary in my cup, the comfrey brewing on the stove and turmeric stains on my hands. “Western medicine and science have replaced all that nonsense,” they say. They make witches out to be evil and then call me a witch because I am seeking the knowledge & ancient wisdom that the world seems hell bent on forgetting. Well, they can call me what they like, but I know I am not evil. This is what I know: I am an intuitive woman who instinctively knows that this sacred earth holds healing that western medicine will never be able to replace. I will be here holding space. I will be their witch. So, here I am- A kitchen witch sipping her Rosemary tea, mixing up her herbal potion, dancing under the moon, and fighting for the knowledge & wisdom of our grandmothers to not be forgotten.”
