My little witch...



I got really moved last week. While I was arranging my bedroom altar, Lucas asked me if he could have his own bedroom altar as well. I said yes, of course you can! It was a surprise to me, because in all these years he never mentioned this, and I never wanted to manipulate him on this matter. He's already greatly influenced living in a pagan house of course, but I hae always been very careful not to make him do something just because I'm pagan. So although I was thoiught it would be cool for him to have his own altar, I always shut my mouth up, this should come from him, if ever.


And so, there we went looking for some stones for him to paint the gods on them (he heard me telling Rodrigo about Dani's idea of painting rocks for a garden altar, times ago), and we arranged a sweet altar on his bedside table. I had taken a photo of it, but that *** camera is broken, yadah...


He's all excited about his new sacred space, and says he wants to decorate it every sabbath and esbat, how cool is that? :o) He even performed his first little ritual to welcome it on the same evening, at closed doors without my presence! !! and more!!! But he said he would get shy with me, so I respected it, lit hisa candle (on a safe holder, of course), and let it be. It took som minutes only, and shame on me, I tried to listen to his words through the closed door, but he was whispering and I could only understand him opening the circle, using the same words we used to use on our rituals. It was sweet to watch his first step on his path. I know that inthe coming years everything can change and he may change his mind about his religious choice, and it's really ok for me, but it was a very special moment...

How sweet. Lucas is a special little boy. I think it's great that you let him decide about this on his own.
