**As first mentioned on March 21st**
For the next little while I’m going to be busy building up a new backlog of material to post on Fridays, amidst the other stuff I’m working on, so for the next few weeks I’m going to satisfy myself to simply post a drabble a week. For you writers out there, feel free to use these drabbles as prompts toward writing something bigger and better, and if you care to share what you’ve written, please send me a link so I can check it out. 🙂
I always wanted to be a witch. Magic – or magik, if you prefer – always fascinated me in a way that nothing else did. I especially enjoyed the religious aspects. The idea of a God and Goddess who are the embodiments of nature and it’s manifestation of life always appealed to me, particularly the stories which describe the Goddess as the being that contains and conceives the universe and the God as her inspiration for life. I felt I had a connection to them…that I could harness their eternal power.
Oh, how gloriously wrong I was…how very, spectacularly wrong.

This is a post I just *had* to post a comment on. As many people know, I do not claim modern religion. Although, I am in fact, a Wiccan. Just thought I might mention that. Carry on. 🙂
Oh really? 😀 Too cool. I experimented a bit with Wiccan faith back in high school.

Just so you know, a handful of the thousands of cases I’ve seen in my medical career have led me to sometimes question my faith.
If any job would make you question your faith, I’m sure a job in the medical field would. o_o
I’ve been compiling some character flashes and information bits so that when I sit down to write their stories, it’s easier. http://www.smblooding.co/the-dream-killers/dreamland-shorts/ These drabbles are great ideas!
Interesting little fragment there. The occult, or perhaps normalcy in today’s twisted world, is always a good thing to explore.

I always encourage people to explore their own faith rather than just accepting what they’re taught by their families. I think that just makes sense, to believe in something because YOU believe, not because OTHER people believe. 🙂
