Witch for my family
Their blood coursing through every orbit, and organ of heaven and earth, here and hereafter;
I send my roots down to the earth and up to the sky
Opening like a flower or a tree of life to all of my feelings, sublimated or otherwise,
Remaining within and honoring with the sheer pleasure of the temple of myself, of the mind as much as of every direction, plant, medicine, meaning and season of the heavens and the earth, here and hereafter, the temple of my voice and the voice of all my family past, present and future, here and hereafter.
So mote it be.
In my circle of life, we do not use any special signs or scriptures, rituals or oaths. We only have where and what we are.

― Herman Melville, Moby Dick
"And I have felt a presence that disturbs me with the joy of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime of something far more deeply interfused, whose dwelling is the light of setting suns, and the round ocean and the living air, and the blue sky, and in the mind of man, a motion and a spirit, that impels all thinking things, all objects of all thought, and rolls through all things..."
William Wordsworth, Tintern Abbey, July 13, 1798
