6 Weeks in the Life of an Appalachian Witch – Part 3

Here are some more pics from the month of May 2015. Enjoy !

Honouring the bones of a Huron AmerIndian burial dug up legally in the 1930s and to be returned to them if they would just answer my emails or if i could find a Native American who would re-bury them for me, but i can’t. So, I will do it myself somewhere with the corn meal offering and for now the yellow candle. In that cache is a couple human teeth and the rest is animal bones, shells, burnt corn, a dried mushroom, and a copper with bone handled fleshing knife.

A couple weeks ago i found this baby mouse belly up and near death at the Red Lodge. It was so young its eyes were not open. I put it in a box with some tissues and kept trying to at least give it some water and milk with a dropper. I carried it around for a day and a half, even in the car on a trip up to Wapwallpen. It stayed alive and i petted it and carried it around in my shirt pocket. Finally when i was visiting Dr Santee’s grave it died. I cried and cried because i tried and tried to keep it alive, but it was just too long. This picture is the dead little baby mousie cradled in the arms of a Buddha statue, and then i put tobacco all over it and laid it before the Goddess in Snakehenge, and then i buried it facing east under the hemlock where other critters are buried. RIP and be reborn in the womb of a mother mouse in a safe place and live a long life little mousie…

As i said i took another trip up to Wapwallopen to visit TIK and his wife where i was graciously fed and bedded over night. Now this is the guy with the house FULL of AmerIndian artifacts i would guess at $3 million in value. The next day he gave me a tour of the various AmerIndian burial grounds in the area and to Fredna falls which Janee aka Lady Phoebe Athene Nimue aka Fredna and Fred aka Frederick LaMotte Santee aka Lord Merlin named after themselves together thus Fredna Falls. I will post pics of both events in the next post or so. TIK also took me on the way back to Santee’s grave where his parents are buried also and i had him snap this picture of my by Dr Santee’s grave. Thanks TIK and Shirley.

On the way home i finally stopped at what i thought was a cemetery which i have driven by for decades and yes there are two nun cemeteries but there is also a huge cathedral dedicated to St Cyril and a nunnery and a school for girls.

The Goddess Mary well adorned with flowers above and below. Hail Mary, Mother of God, and yes i mean the Goddess who gave birth to what everyone calls GOD aka YHVH aka the Star Sun God above and the Horned God on Earth.

I like how i caught the sun ray shining down from this 8 story tower in the cathedral.

In the foyer going into the main cathedral is this statue of Mikael Archangeles.

Looking from the altar back through this Huge cathedral. This blurry picture does not capture the beauty of the sun coming in the huge stained glass windows.

One thought on “6 Weeks in the Life of an Appalachian Witch – Part 3

  1. It’s been a while but I am finally catching up! Cathederal pics look very dramatic. So sad about mousie – I have a mouse that lives in an unused cupboard and I’m rather attached to the little fella (as are the cats- but for different reasons!)
