I would like to teach this to a child one day.
is like accusing
an Athiest [sic] of
This would be awesome and true except that “Atheist” is spelled incorrectly. >_>
Also, I thought “worshiping” was also spelled incorrectly twice, but it turns out that it can be correctly spelled with one “p” or two.
It would be interesting to analyze the way people set up their altars, just to see how much I could learn about them without ever meeting them.
This one, for example, is focused on the cauldron; everything else sits around it. Is that because it’s the biggest piece on the altar, or because this altar is specifically for spellwork, or because the person is connected to water and water symbolism, or is it something else? It’s a simple altar with simple tools (no overly ornate athame for you!), but it’s beautiful in its simplicity.
I really like pictures of personal altars because I like discovering what other people find important.
