Very good saying. My youngest daughter was quite an individual with many questions and a zest for all things natural and super natural. When she was in her teens I bought her a big book on Witchcraft. I did this after researching the subject of course. I liked it’s connection to nature. It spoke to her and gave her some answers at that time. After, she would come to me and ask me to grow some strange plants, like wormwood or foxglove, in the garden. I realized she needed them for ancient spells. I used to always tell her to use her powers for good. 🙂 To this day I still say that to her. It’s a little smile we share. Take care.

It’s the Wiccan/Pagan way to only use spells for good anyway – the saying is “and if it harm none, do what ye will”

You’re like me (and Bob below) – you carve your own path in life – and that’s how it should be!

Hope your studying is going okay – how long till you’re finished with it?

I have to submit it at the end of May. So it’s going to have to be head firmly down until then. I hope to get one more post out before then, mainly because I’m paying for my site! Fingers crossed anyway. In the meantime, all the best and look forward to catching up properly when I can breathe again. 🙂

Ah – so not that long to go (but, of course, a lot of work in the remaining time). Good luck with it all anyway. We didn’t do a dissertation through the OU as such but we had to do quite a large project/assignment at the end of each year’s course and we had a big exam at the end of each year.

Thanks, Carol. Your course sounds as though the assessment took an interesting form. As for me, yes, it’s going to be a hard couple of months, so I apologise if I’m a bit out of it for a while, but after that it’ll finally be all over. I can hardly believe it. I had to do exams until last year (the Latin one was the last). Then last year I had to do submit an extended essay, and it’s the final monster now. It’s a bit daunting but I’m trying to take it one step at a time. Looking forward to catching up soon, anyway. In the meantime take care, and I’ll try and get one more post out before the due date. Eeek! 😀

That was just how the OU was at the time (not sure if it still is as it’s probably more than 10 years ago now). You did a module per year on a particular subject and it had assignments, generally a big assignment at the end and always an exam. You got your degree when you’d passed enough modules (generally 6 modules of 60 points each to reach the required 360 points.

Believe it or not, I’d love to have learnt Latin – doubt I will now! But I can actually see it’s value, it being the basis for a lot of our language. I find language structure and the various commonalities between them very interesting. I was even told at school I had a flair for languages.

Has your degree been 3 years? Most of us took 6 years as, due to working as well, we didn’t generally do more than one 60 point course per year (although some brave souls did).

I’m a bit baffled by that Carol. Is it just the black and white mission statement you like or the entire witchcraft thing? I think we are fairly free in the UK to think for ourselves and go our own way. I always have but it can leave you isolated as people still have that herd mentality in the background that might crave to be different in some way but is not really ever at ease with people who are noticeably different. ( Not talking about witchcraft here just anyone that’s on a different wavelength from the norm.) The USA for example is much more conservative than the UK, probably due to religion still dominating every aspect of life there.

I don’t think they’re saying that we’re not free in ‘The West’ (or ‘The South’ or whatever) to be ourselves – just that people tend towards the herd mentality and governments take advantage of that if you let them. There aren’t enough individuals around from what I can see – you’re excepted from that of course as you’re like me and carve your own path. It never bothers me that it isolates me but then, I’m a loner anyway. I remember my mother saying to me pre-school when I was about 3 that I’d have a tough time at school as I just HAD to be different. I’ve been the same through life and I enjoy it.

I’m quite pro ‘witchcraft’ – or, really, paganism and Wicca. Very benign cultures and often beneficial.

I think that your interpretation is the correct one Carol, summed up as “Don’t follow the herd”.
