Apparently, there are people out there who simply do not have a life!!!!Please just delete the message as I have changed all of my account passwords just today!! Thank you!

I find it rather peculiar how so many non-Wiccans and even many Wiccans as well tend to assume that "every" Wiccan thinks and believes in exactly the same way in regards to pretty much every subject matter.
For example, I may be a bit more on the "conservative side" than most Wiccans whom I know, but that is not to say that I am in any way an extremist. Personally, I feel that extremism whether it be conservative or liberal is a very dangerous thing! Let's face it, too much of anything no matter what it may be is not necessarily a good thing.
Sure, I am a Wiccan and therefore I most certainly do worship, revere, and respect the Goddess & God, The Old Ones, and Nature. I practice, as most do, many of the sacred rites of my faith, I believe in the Three-fold Law of Return (a basic Universal Law) or shall I say the "treating others with the same amount of respect in which you would wish to be treated" mindset. But most of all, I very strongly believe in the Wiccan Rede which teaches us, among many other things, "... and it harm none, do what you will."
Being a solitary practitioner allows me the freedom to follow both my heart and my own personal beliefs without being labeled such names as, if you will please forgive the term, "fuzzy bunny." I always consider myself an idealist at heart, but a realist in reality! I must admit; however, that the majority of my Wiccan friends tend to believe in many of the same ideals and values as I do which only proves to me that perhaps I am not the only Wiccan out there who does not conform to all of the more strict ideals of what a Wiccan does or does not stand for.
And, I believe in doing things for the "good of all" even if it does not necessarily go along with some, if not the majority, of my fellow Wiccans' beliefs. After all, the Lord and Lady gave us so many good things and the free will to think for myself is most certainly one of them!

Happy weekend everyone! I am leaving you all with a cool little song which I used to sing many years ago from Melanie Safka called, “Lay Down (candles in the rain).” She also sang the hit song, “Brand New Key” which I also sang as well. She was a pioneer in the 60’s & 70’s of the women’s pop/rock movement with a very powerful voice! I really love this version of her singing with The Edwin Hawkins Singers, a fantastic and popular gospel group in their day who loved this song so much that they collaborated on it with her against their Rev.’s wishes and he eventually allowed them to sing on her record.
Wishing everyone a blessed weekend!!!!
