A Long Day's Journey Into Night...

Three and a half days with no power and no water. This is what nature can do. Not a nice few days. We hunkered down and did what we had to do. It wasn't pleasant but made it through it.
We were greatful that it wasn't winter time. The storm that came through brought rain and seventy five mile an hour winds. We read by candle light, played cards, ate and did what we could. This tree took down all the power lines on our street. ripped the power off of a neighbors house and blocked the street for ten hours. We were thankful that it wasn't any worse and became closer with our neighbors. One learns to appreciat the simple things in life.

"They feared her because she had a gift, a power that has been passed on to you children. She had the gift of magic. And it was this very gift that saved her life."

"She was vanished to this very island. With her unborn child growing inside her belly. She waited for her lover to rescue her. But he never came. In a moment of despair, she cast a spell upon herself that she would never again feel the agony of love. but as her bitterness grow the spell turned into a curse. A curse on any man who dared love an Owens woman."


"Well, that's what love is like. It makes your heart race. It turns the world upside down. But if you're not careful, if you don't keep your eyes on something still, you can lose your balance. You can't see what's happening to the people around you. You can't see that you're about to fall."

"She heard the beetle ticking for your father's death all day long. She knew that when you hear the sound of the deathwatch beetle the man you love is doomed to die."

"Blood on the moon! Blood on the moon!"

"In this house we have chocolate for breakfast, and never bother with silly little things like bedtimes or brushing teeth."

"And this is what comes from dabbling; I mean you can't practice witchcraft while you look down your nose at it."

"I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for."

"Sometimes I feel like there's a hole inside of me, an emptiness that at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, you could probably hear the ocean."

"Magic isn't just spells and potions."

"Office hereby concluded James Angelov's cause of death was accidental. Jewelry in the ashes of the structure provided positive identification. Sincerely, Gary Hallet special investigator."

"Put the lime in the coconut, drink them both up..."

"My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage!"

"The moon tonight, there's a circle around it. Sign of trouble not far behind."

"You get right over here and grab that spoon and dig right in. Doesn't that look great? And the fumes are great for the pores. Not to mention sealing his nasty spirit back into the grave."

"You know the stuff everyone whispers about me... the hexes, the spells? Here is the thing. I'm a WITCH!"

"Can love travel back in time and heal a broken heart? Was it our joined hands that finally lifted Maria's curse."

"I'd like to think so. There's some things I know for sure..."

A thank you to the blog Frosted Petunias and La Boheme Magique for hosting Practical Magic 2010.
