This New Years Mrs. Squirrel and I visited some friends in Loseeanna (hi, toni!) and spent a few days in New Orleans where I went to the Voodoo Museum. There they had a "wishing stump," a hollowed-out cedar knee in which you can place a wish written on paper, then wrapped around some moolah. At night, they claimed, a Voodoo priestess picked up the wishes and casts spells based upon them. So I wrapped my wish around two dead presidents and had a Voodoo spell cast for my improvement in my business and financial endeavors.
Low and behold! (Where'd that expression come from?) Since that time, projects that had lain dormant for as much as two years started coming alive. Projects I assumed had died of neglect suddenly had people clamboring for them. And new people and projects emerged at a time when nothing was expected.
So I guess I'm converting to Santeria. Better keep those chickens away from me.
Have any of you had magical

See? SEE?!!! I'm not crazy (well, maybe I am, but). This thing even cuts off my questions.
Have any of you had magical experiences?
(The previous line better have printed or we have no thread.)

I've just walked in the door, having come from seeing my spiritual advisor (read: psychic) who told me I'd be traveling overseas for a writing project (yeah, the most traveling I've done for a writing project is a forty five minute commute to the studio).
When lo and behold! (huh, that sounds vaguely familiar) I open up my e-mail and I read a message from the Swedes. The last I communicated with them, I told them of various options in which I could work with them on their project. I didn't hear anything for a bit, and now they want to hammer out a deal with my agent for me to write an outline and script based on one of their ideas.
Coinkydink? I think not.
I would convert to Santeria, but I'm against cruelty to animals.

Coincidence? That depends on whether your psychic reads your journal :)

I think I need to go get some New Orleans juju. I haven't had any good magick lately.
