Pious [Aug. 17th, 2007|11:13 am]
Tony Grist
My daughter is on her way to visit my mother. And while she's there she plans to put flowers on my father's grave. She just rang from the M25 to ask if she'd entered the right postcode into her Tom Tom.

She's having an article published-  about growing up as a witch's daughter. It's good that her memories are so positive. She remembers things I'd completely forgotten- like how we made a model boat as part of a spell to promote peace in the Middle East and how it fell apart even as I was explaining it to her. 

She left out the story of how she "laid healing hands" on a dying gerbil and had it running round its cage again. She didn't think her readers would believe her.

It's strange reading about yourself as a character in someone else's story. 

Family piety is a lovely thing.

I always wondered why you seemed to include Alice in the witchy stuff more than me. She for a while held the knowledge of these mystical 'chakra' things over my head, saying enough to intrigue but never enough to satisfy. I thought that one day I too might be initiated in their mysticism, but maybe that was something better shared with just Al.

Is her article available online anywhere? Do you have a copy you can forward?

I guess Al got included because she was that little bit older. Sorry if you felt excluded.

But don't forget you and Joe got to go on those amazing witchy camps with the naked ladies and all.

The article hasn't been published yet. I've got a
rough digital copy, but I think I need to check with Al before I forward it. Like I say it's rough and she still needs to tweak the grammar etc...

Yeah, that's true about the witch camps, and the age. Like I figured- this was better shared between just you and Al.
