Hag With A Fag

*Afternoon, Clicky… /pats snout… What’s the Song in aid of? … /lights up… *

*Oh… /rolls eyes… Leggy is trying… /drags…*

*Eighteen credits, eh? …/flicks ash…*

Good afternoon, Dear Reader! ūüėÄ It’s snowing again. Not as much as last time, but Thoughtful Man is out working in it…

*Hee is indeed… /blows smoke ring…*

… And I’m sat here, on Sat-‘ere-day, pondering the idea of¬† an anthology short story about ‘hedge riding’…

*Great mates… /puff contentedly… I’m so lucky, Clicky…*

Can someone be both a Hedge Rider and Hedge Witch? Yes if they are practicing crossing the veil, second sight and also find their core practice in their garden etc. If one is performing herbal magic without the Journey work, divination,
and spirit work then they are practicing Hedge Witchery and not Hedge Riding. These practices very much compliment each other. Hedge Riders use poison herbs to aid in flight, while the Hedge Witch is able to connect with the spirit world through meditations.

… And flights of fancy.

‘The¬†Solanaceae, or¬†nightshades, are an economically important¬†family¬†of¬†flowering plants. The family ranges from annual and perennial herbs to vines, lianas, epiphytes, shrubs, and trees, and includes a number of important¬†agricultural¬†crops, medicinal plants, spices, weeds, and ornamentals. Many members of the family contain potent¬†alkaloids, and some are highly¬†toxic, but many, including tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, bell/chili peppers, and tobacco are widely used.

Looking out the window, I see that our garden hedge is cloaked in snow…

Haw (n.)

“enclosure,” Old English¬†haga¬†“enclosure, fortified enclosure; hedge,” from Proto-Germanic¬†*hag-(source also of Old Norse¬†hagi, Old Saxon¬†hago, German¬†Hag¬†“hedge;” Middle Dutch¬†hage, Dutch¬†haag, as in the city name¬†The Hague), from PIE root¬†*kagh-¬†“to catch seize; wickerwork fence” (see¬†hedge¬†(n.), and compare¬†hag). Meaning “fruit of the hawthorn bush” (Old English) is perhaps short for¬†*h√¶gberie.

… thinking I’m glad I don’t have to go outside to smoke in this weather. I’d hate to be made go outside to smoke today, Dear Reader. Standing on the street smoking makes me feel like a whore…

*Yikes! /final drag… That’s a different kind of hag, Clicky… /stubs butt… Nightmarish all the same. I can use that…*

Stay warm and enjoy your weekend, Dear Reader. Oh, and… Have a Song ūüėČ

*A train of thought for a flight of fancy eh, Clicky? /pats snout… Come on, I’d better start writing it… /lights up…*

*Comet? What comet?*

NASA recently spotted two massive space objects hurtling towards Earth.

While the American space agency has pinpointed one as a comet, the other has left it slightly more baffled.

The comet is set to fly close to Earth this week, but the mystery object isn’t expected to make an appearance until February.

*/grins… I’m not sure comets¬†and asteroids are spherical, Clicky…*
