Day 794 (Tidbits)

The 800 Day countdown has definitely warmed (or wound) right up within a relatively short number of posts on The 800 Days blog. I was wondering how long it would take for Blake to get into the topic of WitchCraft. Apparently the answer to my question has been answered in about 1 week of the countdown commencing!


If you identify as "Wiccan" or another "Craft" participant, you'll be able to refresh your memory on a few basic points of Wiccan/WitchCraft belief in the Day 794 post . This post includes a Doreen Valiente version of "The Charge Of The Goddess" as adapted by "Starhawk."

Links to several articles exist in this Day 794 post, including:

 My favourite lines of The Charge of The Goddess are:
"[...] Let there be beauty and strength,
power and compassion, honor and humility,
mirth and reverence within you [...]"

If you do not identify as Wiccan, as a Witch, or as Pagan, you are likely to still find the chants and articles very interesting. Just prepare yourself a little ahead of time - for open-mindedness - because thousands upon thousands of people worldwide adhere to Wiccan/Pagan beliefs and practices.

Some say that the various sects and denominations of Christendom and the practices of the same are simply practices and explanations structured atop "pagan" rituals, theories and philosophy. This will, no doubt, disturb many adamant and devout persons who identify as "Christian," but to my understanding, The 800 Days blog (and certainly THIS blog) is dedicated to voicing opinions and theories of all sorts, no matter what belief system is being displayed. I think it would be very short sighted and closed-minded to only read about and consider things already familiar to me and truly hope that readers will follow along regardless of what belief system they currently subscribe to.

The date of the Day 794 post is: Monday, October 18, 2010.
