Time will take you from me by: Kathy Sullens I grew with your heartbeat, inside and out "My world" is not big enough to describe you, Love I still hear your cry as it synced up with mine Now my heart walks outside of my body Old souls meet again, different from before I saw you standing in rhythm that danced with my dreams A lifetime we were given once more I'll hold you forever in the depths of my being  You were a wish long before we crossed paths Our journey already written deep in your eyes Patience is the virtue that leads you to peace I'll swim with you on the waves of time Time has brought us here. Time will take you from me Godspeed Andariel Maiden of Anguish 2020 How doth a heart shatter into pieces numbered in the millions? And how doth it grow again? This conundrum of love. The irony. Must it surely cause such pain? And what is happiness? Roses and fields of lavenders? Sto

How Our Ancestors Did It : by Lady Alia

Here, in this modern day of technology, I find myself taking a look back. I’d like to share with you how long ago, before the age of modern medicine, others lived through devastating plagues and illnesses… I will be going over old remedies, recipes and herbs; sharing with you ways our ancestors combated illness and healed themselves in times like these. Nostradamus treated the plague in an enlightened manner for a man of such a dark age. He encouraged hygiene ( clean water), fresh air and sun light. He was also known for his invention of the “rose pill,” which was derived from roses (vitamin C) to provide protection from the plague.  Nostradamus wrote many books , in one is a recipe for one of his remedies; "take one ounce of the sawdust or shavings of cypress-wood, as green as you can find, six ounces of Florentine violet-root, three ounces of cloves, three drams of sweet calamus, and six drams of aloes-wood. Reduce the whole to powder before it spoils." Ne

The Spider by: Stormi

While I feel like I am far from the right person to be writing this, I also feel it would be wrong to move forward without saying a word or two about those who came before us.

I've caught glimpses of it from time to time and often wondered what could be found in its pages. Around a month ago, I was handed two copies of The Spider printed 11 years apart. They were both Samhain issues and (given the circumstances that lead to them being placed in my hands) that seemed weirdly appropriate. I've picked them up from
