My most treasured possession is my book, in my own hand of write. What is inside, what I have gained, what I know, I have written there. There are those who term this a “Book of Shadows”. For me it is more a book of illumination in the darkness of what can be considered one person’s life experiences. Aye, to those that ask, it contains certain formulae and spells written in Latin, Gaelic and Creole and English. I have the knowledge of herbes well within it’s leathern covers, and may flowers, leaves and feathers and trinkets gathered in my life within its pages. In it, it is obvious that there are things that most women – or even men have ne’er learned, nor been given opportunity to do so. Astronomy, mathematics, and the natural sciences. This will pass to my children – and I hope that they gain something from what I have learned – and add to it or make their very own.
There are other things in my life, which cannot be referred to as possessions. Those things are private and personal and not up for public scrutiny nor debate.
