Ok, guess what I did today?
I went to a WICCAN GARAGE SALE.
It wasn’t called a “Wiccan garage sale”. It had signs that said, “GARAGE SALE! ARTS AND CRAFTS!” with lots of arrows and stuff. And I’m all about arts and crafts, baby.
But when I went in the garage, it was all spells and bundles and labyrinths and things you burn and things you put on your alter and things you bury. I was FULLY INTERESTED and yet also, FULLY NOT SURE WHAT EVERYTHING WAS. I wandered around and acted like I totally knew what everything was and in the end bought some earrings, a “releasing bad energy” packet that has sage and orange peel and other stuff in it, as well as a totally bitchin’ espresso maker for $8 that has a Williams Sonoma price tag on it that made me very happy.
There were these “Intention bundles” that were made of wheat and eucalyptus and bundles of something. You were supposed to write your intention on the attached card and “release it to the universe” by burning it, burying it, throwing it in water, etc… but I felt like that was too much pressure. I mean, how do you take something like that back if you change your mind? I change my mind a lot.
I bought a Wish Crane instead. You whisper your wish in it’s origami ear…. and nowhere on the little card does it say that I can’t wish a bunch of times. And change my mind. So, if the crane is a little soggy from my whispery slobber … universe, forgive….
I have an awful lot of wishes for a 50 cent paper crane.
