Reblog – The puzzle of the Mother of Modern Witchcraft — a village witch who lived in a tower block

Today i found this link (second one down) at The Wild Hunt to an article called The puzzle of the Mother of Modern Witchcraft – a village witch who lived in a tower block, which is about the fact that Doreen Valiente lived a good part of her life in a tower block in the city of Brighton, UK. The article is good in that is proves a “city witch” can actually still practice Witchcraft, getting out in the parks and woods when she can. The video, which is at that link and also embedded below, is about the unveiling of a Blue Plaque honoring her at the Summer Solstice, and is even attended by the mayor of Brighton. It is a little hard to hear everything with the wind blowing on the microphone, but i was especially touched by the man who spoke of Doreen’s last lucid moment before death when when “knew where she was going”, the witness assuming she meant to the Goddess. Enjoy and Blessed Be!
