Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Of Seas, Sands, and Tides
Challenge entry - Garnet
I’m not sure that this is so much about Magick or me being fanciful, but I thought send it.
I have a love/hate relationship with the ocean. I don’t go to the beach because no matter what sunscreen I use, 20 minutes and I’m a lobster.
Cruises are beyond belief, you can sit on your balcony and watch it all day and not get wet. And they feed you all the time…
It is fun to think about mythology and the ocean. Pirates, sailing ships, Skull and cross bones, Mermaids (who were actually Manatee’s), sea monsters, 2o,ooo leagues under the sea & a giant octopus, and believe it or not-Unicorns. This came about when men saw the Narwhal. The lost city of Atlantis and the Tsunami’s that probably sank it. I hate to mention Romance now but it is romantic.
(Speaking of Romance…)Aquaman (Jason Mamoa – Sigh). Grr Argg, Yo ho me hardies, yo ho (That’s Captain Jack)
The Ocean is big, I mean really big, deep, full of things that want to eat you and fish pee in it. Nasty.
It’s overwhelmingly beautiful to see, amazing to hear and smell. It’s just…Magick without any Wands needed.
Watch the moon sometime over the sea, breathtaking. Think of the element of Water so necessary for life of all kinds, animal, mineral and vegetable. Medication, hydro electricity…amazing.
Humidity might make it hard to breath, but if you’ve ever been to a desert, it’s so dry it feels like the inside of your nose is burning when you breath.
I can admire but am overwhelmed by the sea. I’m a girl from farm country in western New York, the most water we saw was the ponds that the cows drank from. Yep, the ocean is pretty darn big.
We get our salt from the sea but not always the ones at the beach. Areas near the great lakes have deep salt mines. Then there’s the salt flats at Bonneville both are leftovers of dried up seas.
I absolutely love jasper and some of it from the sea is the most beautiful in the world. Coral, pearls, the treasures are limitless.
Rich and I were talking about life today and he said that “Every thing has a soul, trees, grass, animals, everything.” I just smiled and said. “You’re right Babe.”
And the Magick of the sea, is it’s soul.
Thanks and Blessings
