Halloween Edition of A Family Conversation: Everyday People Engage in Folk Magick All The Time & “The Client” (Part II)

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

**********************************************************************

More magick and mystery with the cousins!

With prompting from “The Client,” today we’re talking about:

  • The risks involved in seeking spiritual/ magickal guidance
  • Everyday people blending magick with religious and spiritual practices
  • “Shut your mouth powder” on the shelf in the back
  • Whether or not governments practice magick
  • Whether or not you have to believe in a spell to be affected by it
  • Psychosomatic or psychogenic or NEITHER
  • A warning to men about eating spaghetti sauce, chili and gumbo made by women they are casually dating
  • The mind as a powerful thing!
  • Thinner by Stephen King
  • Taking a measured approach to magick
  • Staying out of other folks business
  • Things worse than death

Enjoy,

Love Notes From Lady G: Be Happy

How can I love somebody else
If I can't love myself enough to know
When it's time,
Time to let go.

Be Happy.  Performed by Mary J. Blige. Songwriters: Jean-claude Olivier / Arlene Delvalle / Gilbert Askey / Curtis Mayfield / Sean Puffy Combs / Mary J Blige

Melodic Memories

I was just inspired to repost this as a result of a conversation with my cousin Ron. Maybe it’s just a yearning for my childhood days–when life was carefree. I hope you enjoy!

I remember telling my cousin Ron about several memories that I had which seemed to lack any clear context–yet they continued to float around in my mind.

He chuckled and said, “I have those too, I call them ‘cryptic memories’.”

And so…

This post contains several ‘cryptic memories’ that may or may not have happened on the same day–though I presented them as if they did.

And, since I’m a music lover, each memory (event) is closely tied to a song from my early childhood years.

I hope you enjoy this quick exercise in dreamy quasi-stream of consciousness.

Bus driver, please look for me

‘Cause I couldn’t bear to see what I might see

I’m really still in prison and my love, she holds the key

A simple yellow ribbon’s what I need to set me free

I wrote and told her please…

Tie a yellow ribbon ’round the old oak tree…”

I Don’t Like Kale!

And I don’t WANT to HAVE to!

Flat out…

I’ve concluded, after several attempts at it, I just don’t like kale!

I mean, I’ve done pretty much everything I could to make it tolerable to my palate!

Seriously, I’ve massaged it…

I’ve oiled it…

I’ve tossed it…

I’ve seasoned the hell out of it.

And despite all that…

I just don’t like it.

Well, I take that back, I do like it pulverized into oblivion in a smoothie.

Other than that…

I just don’t like kale!

Do you have a food that you feel kinda pressured to like?

In the words of my Southern playmates of yore:

“I said, I meant it, I’m here to represent it!”

I am a proud veggie lover who actually hates kale!

Good day.

Love Notes From Lady G: Make That Move!

So many times

By holding back I let the good things pass me by

And then one day I asked myself the reason why

And like an answer from above you came into my life

Don’t hold back. Make that move!
