Fall misty air surrounded us in reds and golds, as the weather grows cold and crisp. Night befalls us much earlier than before. Leaves blow gently in the cool crisp breeze of early morning light, whispering their song.
I sit and drink coffee as the sun rises slowly above mountains and forest dark and drear behind my humble abode of Hampton Bluff, a small quint town of 200 or so residents.
Few outsiders know of this Village, we have good and bad people among us as most towns and cities around the world.
We are a Village of old school belief, strong-willed up bring of our children, spanking and such. Working long hours in a day to care for our family survival, hard winter months that befall here in Hampton Bluff, surrounded by high mountains, dark dense forest.
Our roads and bypasses seldom plowed or cared for unless we do it ourselves. Schools here are small and strict on the behavior of students and staff as well. We expect and demand the best of all that live among us...There are few phones and computers available for us. Only the Well to do People and Our Libray have them...
Many people that live here consider me as a natural healer...I am a witch for the Greater Good of My Village... I was given this title as a young lass by my mother and grandmother...I was taught as they were by their family that proceeded them...
There are other traits I have been blessed with such as Herbology, the study and the use of natural plants, roots, to help heal in most cases. It took several years to learn this properly...
African Violet-protection and spirituality.
Allspice-Healing, luck, and money.
Yellow Root-good for healing and protection.
Bleeding Heart-Good for Love.
Celery-Good for Developing Psychic Power.
And Much More, too many to list within the stories.
