Journey Through The Shadows..


 It was time, both dreaded and joyous,


  For Magda and I, to say our farewells.


I knew well, the magickal place to which she was heading


But still,


I lingered, half hoping she'd stay.

 
In she climbed and patiently waited.
 
 
So, I swaddled her there, with incantations and cloth.
 


When I lifted my eyes, she was gone.

~may your heart be ease this day...not saddened by her departure...only filled with the desire and inspiration to create another just as beautiful as her...may she journey safe to her new home...gorgeous one is she...much love light and blessings~

That makes two of us involved with bittersweet partings, Mel. It's a wrench, isn't it? And yet I've found that releasing somebody onto a road that is right for them only enriches the love, and is quite energising in its own way. I'm sure Magda will be treasured. Like all your creations, she has personality enough to win hearts.

Oh you two are lovely!
Thank you Brandi and thank you Jeff. I just want to keep them all and want to send them off on their journeys at the same time.
Hmm, I wonder who or what will be next to visit me ...
