Altered work for pride month :)
As someone who's part of the LGBTQ+ community and grew up with 2 mommies, this is an important event for me!

I altered the forest artwork, since where else do you feel your true and inner self while being in nature?
What is more honest, bold and real THAN nature? At least that is what I associate it with :D

I see this picture as a metaphor for so many things, it also reminds me of how confused I've been with myself when I was younger, like the trees around me perfectly represent all these wild feelings, doubts, fears and thoughts. But always looking toward the light, hoping that everything will clear up one day...

Lovely picture! I love the colors and the mix of "fantasy" with a dark tone!

Also I totaly agree with you about nature! This is the only and real thing here! That's why when I'm told "Who's your God?" I usualy answer "Nature. Because it exists".

And yeah I feel so much good in nature! I wish I can spend my life in nature one day! :D

Well I'd say that nature IS God. God to me is just an man-made expanation invented my humankind to explain the non-understanble parts of nature like death, the reason to live, what's your role, etc etc... While I think it should just be "you have a life so do what you want with it"! ^^

Well I use to go to explore nature when I go at my grandmar. We take the car and get lost! It's awesome what you can find when you just push yourself far! :D

I think that is a pretty good way to put it, I'd agree ^^
Maybe that is one of the reasons so many people switch to wiccan stuff lately :D
Did you ever had any research about that?

Awww that's so cool, did your granny enjoy it too? ^^
Did you discover something exciting? :D

Actualy yeah I've always been fascinated with witchcraft and sorcery. I tend to consider that witches aren't the children eating old ugly hags from Fairy Tales. I think that witchcraft is not evil by nature but was just misunderstood and considered as dangerous by a religion who couldn't stand another autority. I was actualy part of a wiccan message board and studied Alchemy , plus read books about the topic. I even have a beautiful book named "The Witch" all made from leather like an old book. So yeah I'm really fascinated by the topic! :D

Yeah my granny actualy enjoys our trips! She doesn't go to far from her place usualy but when I'm here we go to find many places around. Normandy is really rich so we have manors, churches, beautiful villages, landscapes and of course nices places at the sea. So yeah there are a lot of things to explore! :D

Oh wow, that actually sounds pretty freakn cool :wow:
I must admit I used to be a bit put off from it when I discovered tumblr and facebook groups and the wiccans there actually believed they could SERIOUSY change the weather or harm people or influence politics etc
Like, sorry but that all sounded so damn ridiculous.
But I mean, there MUST be wiccans who are decent and intelligent people, the kind of people I'd like to learn more about ^^
Is that Book a good one? Would you recommend it to a beginner?

Awww, man that sounds beautiful :O I need to visit your granny too  :P
JK but I srsly need to see more of normandy :D

YEah you are always a bit intimidated when dealing with people close to Wicca and never know what to expect truly. It depends peoples I guess. The message board I was on was very nice and open minded. You had the "common peoples" like you and me who looked like truly "normal" but actualy believed in "The Goddess" and practiced rituals and all. And you had also the ones who were really into it. Guess should it be for Wicca or anything else you'll always find different peoples. But I have some friends who are still wiccans and whom I met on that message board years ago :)

The book is named "The Witch" from Jules Michelet. He's an historian but he wrote this book to explain how a woman can come to be a witch and which are the ritual. It's pretty old but still a really interresting lecture because it deals with several well known cases of Witchcraft in France! It can be read like a novel actualy while it's an historical work. I'll send you a picture of my book's version :D

Hey You'd be more than welcome in Normandy at my granny's! We've been greeting a friend of me twice during the last two summers and ran all accross Normady. Her sayings : "MY BEST VACATIONS IN ALL MY LIFE!!!!". You'd be most welcomed :D

Yeah indeed, sadly. It's pretty unfortunate when these hardcore people are the "first impression" when you try to get some inight of something new. As I said, it honestly put me off the whole thing pretty damn fast.

I see ^^ that sounds indeed pretty interesting!
I think I'd bee that boring wanna-be-witch that would just be interested in cooking and "brewing" healthy drinks, tries to be close to nature and animals and collects pretty crystals etc xD
But I'd never talk myself into believing that I can actually change the weather and shit

awww that sounds so nice :) Let me know when you're there the next time
