Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

NeoNote — He would deny it

He would deny it, but one of my best teachers about magick was my Baptist deacon grandfather. He had been a Louisiana farmer, and after he retired he had a garden. It was a little less than an acre and in some of the saltiest Arizona desert you can imagine. But he grew amazing, delicious vegetables. It was a discipline and a meditation. A fundamental change in the land and a reaffirmation of life and humanity.

Because once he had the vegetables, he'd go visiting to his friends and to the people he knew were going through a rough time. Granpa would listen, he'd be quiet, and if they had joy, he'd share. If they needed joy or hope, he'd share. He'd pour his passion in those vegetables, and used that to strengthen the bindings of life that we share. It was a gift from the Earth made manifest.

He couldn't do anything else and still be the man he was.
