Myth stories. I mean really. I may come from lineage of two witches burned in the Salem witch trials, so this also happens to peak my interest in the topic. But…these wood prints should remind us of a few things.
Let us remember…Christianity comes in spear heading the world with it’s own myths. Strong smart women were labeled witches, and men who do things unconventionally are wizards. Unlike today where it is status quo popular to be a witch… just by saying you are. I digress… Let us remember the holiest dance and drink with the Devil too. We all do.
Sometimes it is the most conformed and confined individuals that are the sickest. But to some degree… everyone dances and drinks with their demons. Shit, some probably live with them full time. It is times when we don’t handle our problems like we should. By escapism: drinking, sex, drugs, or whatever vice. By not using all your self worth. By not always doing your best. By not being somebody, or doing something useful in this world. Not using your self for the greater good.
But, we all need reprieve here and there. Sometimes to do your best one next day… you have to fall down in the days prior. You have to tear everything apart. Set it on fire. You have to literally fuck everything up. Destruct to construct. Without death, there is no renewal. Without the bad, there is no good. So spend a little time with your demons here and there. It may make you a better person….
To see the light, one must be open to seeing the dark.
Just do things the best way you see fit.
