Spirits of October - Giveaway #3
The graveyard I visited last week had a substantial amount of statuary and other objects arranged at the gravestones. The stones themselves were not particularly ornamental, but most of them had many decorations placed around them. I found these little vignettes sweet, and sometimes sad - in the manner that children's toys were placed around a child's grave.
I was particulary taken with this statue of the Mother at one of the cemetary gates. I realize that she is stepping on the snake as a nod to the old testament, but I couldn't help but feel a bit of Hekate in her, with the snake and her place at the crossroad/gates. I'm sure Catholics would NOT agree!
Our last book giveaway this month is another book of Spirit. Raven Grimassi's "Spirit of the Witch."
From his website:
"Spirit of the Witch was written to convey the religion of Witchcraft as a spiritual path.
In this book the reader will discover the spirituality of being a Witch (the Witch in Moon light) and how to apply that to daily life (the Witch in Sun light).
Spirit of the Witch is a personalized examination of the core essence of practicing Witchcraft and honoring its beliefs.
It is the first book written solely on the topic of spirituality in Witchcraft."
You know the routine by now...leave a comment and a way I can get ahold of you if you don't have a Blogger profile. I will draw the final name on Monday, October 31st!
