I apologize that I do not have the same flair as our beloved Lady Abyss had in writing something to welcome you to a new day but my writing is geared more towards short stories then poetry or prayers. I will do my be to bring you something every day that may help your spiritual journey. I also republish some of Lady Abyss’ morning posts. So here goes my first shot of living up to my own exceptions.
Our New Year has begun,
We have thought over what we did in the last year,
These things are behind us and done,
We will now try to look at what is coning without fear.
May the Lady and the Lord watch over us all,
from early spring until late fall,
And from early fall until the newness of spring.
Blessed be in this New Year one and all.
Lady Abyss started Witches of The Craft ~ Witchcraft for the 21st Century approximately 19 years ago. In the beginning this website was a first blazing the trail for all the Pagan, Tarot, Astrology, etcetera that would come after it. She dealt with many threats including one to cut off her head from the militant group that call themselves Isis. Yet she still blazed on. She was in an auto accident in which she lost on of her familiars and that left her in a coma with pins, screws, and metal plates in her left leg an arm. When she awoke from the coma she had amnesia that lasted bout about a month. Yet she still blazed on. The next life changing thing that happened was unexpectedly losing her childhood and right-hand witch at WOTC, Mistress of the Myst. Who left 2 teenage sons that Lady Abyss adopted as her own. Than a local stalker throwing a molotov cocktail through her front window almost immediately engulfing the first floor of her cabin causing her to grab Kade, her other familiar, and jump from the second floor loft, her bedroom, when see landed she had broken a be section of her left leg and arm plus doing damage to the hardware in her from the auto accident. During this hospital stay it the doctor found out she had some kind of rare disease effecting her white blood cells this was life threatening at the time and unless she took a specific medication daily she would die within 2 weeks of the last dose she took. Oh, and a months supply was $795.00 USD which her brothers and sister bought her 1st prescription of it through donations after the 1st month than the manufacturers gave her the medication as she was in a trial study for it. The medication to my knowledge from talking to her was working find. Yet she still blazed on. Next she had a heart attack in which her heart stopped thankfully her close friend and sister, Lynette Starfire, happened to be visiting and as a registered nurse knew what do to until the paramedics arrived to bring her back to us. Yet she still blazed on. Lady Abyss was no longer able to support her family by just the website and Witchy store brought in. So she sold WOTC to me and went to work for her veterinarian. This man attacked her with the idea a of raping her. When the the police arrived both were arrested and to sum it up the Kentucky Good Old Boys network twisted around what happened to make it look like she just attacked the man for no reason instead of the self defense it really was. She’d was in jail for 2 or 3 days and because of donation from you along with the money her very close friends and adopted family can up with she was released on bail. Yet she still blazed on. This spring she was on her rider mower in deep grass that was soggy from a lot of rain. A watermoccasin, who’d be can be deadly, bit her left angel leaving behind the bacteria that causes flesh eating disease. She had to go to a specialist Lord Myst found to cut out all the dead and some living flesh to get rid of it. Yet she still blazed on. She had fibromyalgia which I know from personal experience can be so painful at times a person can barely walk or type. Yet she did both to make sure her pioneering website stayed art the top of its field while Lady A still blazed on. She was diabetic so any injury took longer to heal and ran a greater risk of infection. Yet she still blazed on. Always by her side to help her through each horrific event were her two adopted sons, Eleanor (another childhood friend that relocated to the Louisiana Byous), and Mistress of the Myst brother also another very close childhood friend and confidant.
If you read her obituary, I’m sure was written by her blood children who were ashamed she was a powerful witch, you will see only the names of her blood children and grandchildren. To the list of those who survived her the names Jacob and Joseph her adopted sons and Lord Myst her fiancee and 1 more grandchild.
When I think I of her now two old poems come to me. The first one I use when I feel inadequate to own WOTC because Lady A good me many times I know you can do it or I wouldn’t have let you by my website.
This other one reminds that even with all the medical issues Lady Abyss still blazed onward even shaking up the online pagans with their different websites. So when you get discouraged because something you are working on keeps coming out wrong think of this poem and our beloved sister, friend, and mentor Lady of the Abyss.
