Spotlight: Wendy (woodwife)By Brenda Essig (Zanymuse) on October 17, 2011
|The name of her cubit was so enchanting that I was drawn to it. What I found there was surprising. "The Cottage In The Thicket" is a site for Pagans. Here? Then my brain clicked out the answer... That is what Cubits was designed for ...diversity...where a site's owner could present their interests in a safe and controlled environment. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to know about this site and the woman behind it. Here is her response in her own, very well expressed words.|
“She who is the beauty of the green earth, and the white moon among the stars, and the mystery of the waters, and the desire of the heart of man, calls unto thy soul. Arise, and come unto Her. For She is the soul of nature, who gives life to the universe. From Her all things proceed, and unto Her all things must return.” - from The Charge of the Goddess by Doreen Valiente
The cats' mamma was a stray who adopted us. She turned up in our yard skinny and desperate, so I fed her. She wasn't friendly at first but I would sit in the door way and talk to her while she ate. Eventually she let me pet her and we had regular "girl talk" meetings in the morning. Finally she decided to move in...and brought a litter of kittens with her. We tried finding homes for them but when that didn't work we couldn't bear to send them to a shelter, so we kept them.
I love to read, and garden and cook. I make and sell jewelry and religious items geared toward my spiritual community.
I suppose it’s my spiritual path that makes me different. I’m a pagan. More specifically I’m a spiritual pantheist, one who believes that “all” is God. I revere the natural world and the divine in all things. I also leave open the idea that there are other worlds and beings attached to our own, but hidden, that interact with us from time to time.
Thank you Wendy for taking the time to share yourself with us.
Readers: I hope that you enjoyed getting to know Wendy. I know I was very happy to have this chance to present her to you!

|I believe that everyone has a story worth telling and a uniqueness that sets them apart from the crowd. We are like snow flakes. We look similar at a glance but no two are identical.|
