Tales from the forest, of witchcraft and Spirits, of children and love. My name is Althaea, given to me by my Gods, and this site is home to my ramblings and musings in regards to my experiences as a Pagan Witch, Priestess, and mother of five adorable monsters that my husband and I are attempting to raise within our belief system. Our practice is based upon a communal relationship with the Land, steeped in witchcraft, and rounded out with Pagan concepts and that which makes sense to us and comes naturally. What can I say? A big part of our Family Values is pragmatism and common sense.
