(The one who is the House weaver should weave the first three lines with the shuttle, saying “Hail Athena!” each time the reed swings back and forth. All should come forth and weave a line or two, also saying, “Hail Athena!” Then the loom is carried to its place of honor for the rest of the year, where the cloak for her statue will be woven with pictures and symbols in her honor, to be presented to her at the Panathenaea.)

Spell To Break Up A Couple

SPELL TO BREAK UP A COUPLE
You need a piece of black yarn at least 12 inches long. At midnight light a candle and tie nine
separate knots one inch apart. Each time you tie a knot, do it with anger thinking of how they
will hate each other and want to break up! Say these words each time you tie a knot.
“Take this couple that I see
Love is gone, unhappy be
Knots of discord, knots of hate
Soon to part is their fate
With this spell I know I’ve won
I curse their love to come undone!”
Take and put it some where in your dresser drawer where you will see it every time you open it.
This way every time you see it you can visualize the couple breaking up.
When the spell has worked, you may throw it away, but do not untie the knots!

Life Is Good

Life Is Good

Life is good no matter how
you knit it up
or unravel it.
Pure and simple
Life is good
when you are knitting.

Life is good
No matter how
you sing it
whether the tune
is sweet or not.
Life is good
when you are singing.

Life is good
No matter whether
you are running hot
or whether you
are running cold.
Life is good
when you are running.

Life is good
no matter if the story
is fresh or old
the import is that
your story is.

Life is good.
It just is.
