Seasons Of The Witch - One Year In The Life Of A Hedgewitch

Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer - Click on a season to read my account. I use a calendar just like everybody else, but I also mark the passing of time according to the phases of the moon, the seasons of the sun, and the movements of Nature. I celebrate days marked by many religions, but only in accordance with my own spiritual experience. Truth can be found in many religions, but only in nature will one find honesty.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, to discover that I had not lived.

I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary.

I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and to be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion."

~ Henry David Thoreau
