THE WITCHERY

A New Fantasy Series For Kindle

For her Crime of Bitchery she was sentenced
To rehabilitation at The Witchery…
Where Life’s Questions All Have Answers…

          Welcome to “THE WITCHERY” located on Euphoria Way – where life’s questions all have answers. Getting in is easy, getting back out? That’s another story… The location of The Witchery is protected from the inquiring minds and eyes of those who misunderstand that the ugly evil witches portrayed in fairy tales and folklore do not bear any resemblance to modern day Wiccan. There’s a fine line between Wickedness and Wiccanness. It’s a tightrope and the proprietors of The Witchery walk it well – above it is Serenity – below it is Living Hell!
           The Witches of Forevermore were ready to welcome Jade Hart to The Witchery on Euphoria Way… They had been expecting her for a while now. Word of her had been carried to them by the wind and its magical messengers – the birds.
           Only a select few people were called to The Witchery on Euphoria Way. You couldn’t just decide to go to there. You didn’t find it – it found you! Jade found that out when she woke up on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere next to a signpost somewhere in rural Pennsylvania, early in the good old summertime. She had a pounding headache, no money, no phone, no identification and no purse. The sign was the only thing she could see in the distance in any direction. The dirt road seemed to be a private road through fields that extended as far as the naked eye could see. It was a weathered wooden sign beautifully carved, on a post that appeared to be a road marker of some sort. She stood up to get a closer look as she couldn’t read the small print because she didn’t have her glasses on. Of course, her glasses were also in her purse that was missing.

EUPHORIA WAY

This road we’re on is a hard one,
With plenty of troubles that get in the way,
Sometimes we get side tracked by all the detours,
And feel like we’re starting over everyday.

But you have found the right rambling pathway,
This road that’s known as Euphoria Way …
Where we will teach you what real peace is –
So you can finally win life’s game that we all must play.

The Witches of Forevermore
Welcome You To THE WITCHERY

             I thought it was a very odd sign to be here in the middle of a field, almost as odd as me being in the middle of a field in the middle of nowhere. The last thing that I remembered from the night before was being at happy hour at Saldoni’s Bar with a guy I met in the parking lot when I left work at the pizza shop. He was hot – I mean unbelievably hot. For some reason though, his name now escapes me. It disappeared along with him and my designer purse and everything in it. He must have roofied my drink when I went to the little girl’s room because the last thing I could remember was him winking at me with his piercing green eyes, and thinking again that he was really hot before his image disappeared into a blurry fog. There were no other memories between then and waking up now in the middle of nowhere by this signpost talking to myself.
“Where the hell am I … and what do I do now?”

HOPE – A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Card

Butterflies, Caterpillars, Hope, & Despair
Just when the caterpillar thought
the world was over,
she became a butterfly.” –  Proverb
How many times has your heart been so broken that you thought that the world could end in the next moment and you wouldn’t care at all? What is that horrible depressed feeling? It’s despair! But its important to try to take a moment to realize on the other side of despair is HOPE! When someone has broken your heart, or when love has diminished and fizzled away without your consent, don’t despair. When you are at odds with important people in your life and your relationships are difficult to navigate successfully and happily, TURN to HOPE. It’s free. It’s available to all. Without it, butterflies might become extinct.

HOPE is a great buzz word these days but HOPE is also an absolutely necessary emotion for all people to have in their arsenal. Why? Well let’s examine that concept. If the caterpillar was in such a state of despair that it was convinced the world was over, that it decided to end its existence early, it would have never lived to fly. Not only that, what if the caterpillar was so distressed by its appearance that it was despondent, and just didn’t care to carry on and it gave up and rolled under a bike wheel. It would have never known how truly beautiful it would have become. It could have evolved into a gorgeous, colorful, beautiful, ethereal, free spirited creation with the ability to follow a path, a road or even just flights of fancy. It may have contributed to the quality of the world in effective beneficial ways.
Despair is just a rut in the road, not a bottomless pit. So when you feel like a frustrated somewhat dull looking caterpillar and your patience is tested by waiting for your life to change, or your relationships to get better, or for the world to change, think of that butterfly and the fact that there is a great big world that is waiting for you to evolve and hold onto your HOPE.
Your HOPE will help you evolve and become a beautiful part of the world. As you share your bright new gorgeous colors as you flit and fly through life think about how terrible it would have been if you, like that caterpillar, had given into that despair. With enough HOPE a butterfly can fly over or around even a bottomless pit.
So, remember that HOPE lives within each of us. It is always there within to draw upon if despair tries to sneak in to take away the right to fly and soar in your life like a butterfly, or the right to share and disperse and enjoy all the beautiful colors of life. HOPE is like a GPS or a map on the road of despair. There may be a few detours along the road, but ultimately your GPS or your map will help you find the way to your destination. Just when you think you’re hopelessly lost you arrive at your desired location. So keep your GPS, your maps and your HOPE with you to help you navigate not only the road of despair, but all roads of life.

Very early in my writing career I decided with very little difficulty what I’d use as my tag line because I knew why I wanted to write. I aspired to inspire people to improve and enhance their lives. So, it was logical that my tag line would read “I Aspire To Inspire”. I wanted to make a difference with my writing, whether it was fiction or non-fiction because it was clear that there were many unhappy, confused people in the world who could benefit from a little inspiration.  With that in mind I’ve added a new feature to my blog – Wickedly Wise Inspiration Cards.

I’ll be adding a new card every week and I’d love to send them to you to add a little inspiration to your week.  If the idea of receiving a little inspiration at an unexpected moment sounds good to just send me your email address below.  Or check back often if you need a little inspiration.

Do You Believe In Karma?

Relationships Come And  Relationships Go………………………
But Karma Goes On And On………………………………………..

Everybody knows that some relationships last and some  don’t!  Just like no one knows where the wheel of Karma stops – no one knows where, and when a relationship will end.  It is comforting to know that even though relationships come and go – Karma goes on and on. Relationships exist in all walks of life – romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, community relationships, etc.

When any relationship you’re in ends, you can be somewhat comforted that if someone hurt you they have a future appointment with Karma.

Drama Wars – A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Card

Life is not a Lifetime Movie. Who doesn’t love a good Lifetime Movie? I know that I do! But let’s face it, in everyday life in real time, most people should not want their life to resemble the Drama Wars that are a major part of the storyline in many Lifetime Movies. The important thing to remember is that movies are primarily made as entertainment and as such they can be very unrealistic and still be very entertaining. That doesn’t mean that people should try to emulate them in the real world in their real life.

Let’s face it! Relationships can be difficult at times, but when a relationship is difficult all the time or when they are downright disasters some of the time, and you aren’t trying to get counseling together or thinking about parting ways, you may be addicted to Drama Wars. There used to be a saying that the best part about breaking up is making up; but if that’s also the best part of your relationship that’s just sad.  So if its broken and you want to fix it and can fix it by all means – fix it; but if its broken beyond repair and you know it but you love the drama of the highs and lows and the Drama Wars, then perhaps you should consider whether you’re addicted to drama. That brings to mind a line from a song but with a slight lyric change – “you might as well face it you’re addicted to drama” that you’ve disguised in your mind as love.

Do Sorrow and Sadness fill your days and nights? Do something positive to change your tomorrow! Sorrow is an emotion that most people don’t aspire to experience, yet most people do experience sorrow and sadness sometimes in their lifetime. Even though in some ways it is a negative emotion, it can also help a person to appreciate all the other times that they are happier. It can also help a person detach from someone or something negative that has been in their life. Sorrow and sadness generally improve with the passing of time. As people often say time does heal wounds.  Doing something positive to change your tomorrow can also help a person regenerate. So, if you’re feeling sad and sorrowful or experiencing remorse because of something that’s been done to you, or because of something that you did, focus on doing something positive to boost your spirits and to change your tomorrow to a happier day. If prolonged sadness does not improve sometimes professional assistance is needed.

Fireworks – A Tribute To All Americans

Fireworks - There's Pretty Thunder In The Sky - Kate Woods, Author - A Tribute To All Americans
Fireworks – There’s Pretty Thunder In The Sky – Kate Woods, Author – A Tribute To All Americans

Happy Birthday America! This 4th of July let’s reflect on all that is amazing about America. It’s a great time to just celebrate our country. Like everything in existence it has its flaws as well as its promises, and its gifts as well as its give backs. But it is still the land of the free and the home of the brave and a melting pot of people who generally try to work together for the greater good of all Americans. America is more than a bright and shining city on a hill – it is a bright and shining spacious night sky filled with shining stars of many shapes and sizes – Americans – as amazing as fireworks in the sky.

THERE’S PRETTY THUNDER IN THE SKY

A Tribute to All Americans
Because it takes all of us to light up the sky!

There’s pretty thunder in the sky,
I’m not sure how it gets there and I don’t know why.
Mommy sez its up there because it’s the 4th of July.
And its as American as picnics and homemade Apple Pie.

Fireworks - Hope - A Tribute ...
Fireworks – Hope – A Tribute

Daddy sez its up there as a Patriotic display,
A special way to commemorate a very special day.

My Grandpa sez its up there to remind us that we’re free,
And my Gramma sez its up there especially for me.

My Brother sez its up there because it’s Independence Day.
My Sister sez its up there because we’re allowed to pray.

The man who’s on the loud speaker sez,
It’s for a celebration of a free and united nation,

The man there in the uniform sez its such a beautiful sight,
Much better than light from gunfire in the darkened sky of night.

There’s pretty thunder in the sky,
I’m not sure how it gets there,
But I think that maybe I now know why.

Peace - Fireworks - A Tribute
Peace – Fireworks – A Tribute

I think it’s to celebrate the United States of America
And its land and its seas and it skies,
The strength and beauty of this nation,
Declared by the thunderous illuminated sky.

Excerpt From An American Holiday Patchwork
By Kate Woods

Just remember some stars in the night sky shine more brightly than others just like some Americans are more successful than others; but it takes all the stars to light up the dark night sky, the biggest, the smallest, the brightest and those that can barely be seen but are still doing their best to shine. It takes all Americans to keep America a bright and shining place for all. America is more than a bright and shining city on a hill – America is a bright and shining spacious night sky filled with shining stars of many shapes and sizes – just as amazing as the fireworks in the night sky on the Fourth of July.

Happy 4th of July to all Americans!

Fireworks - Pretty Thunder In The SkyUntil next time, have a warm heart but be COOL! Be happy, be well, and be the best you that you can be!
