smiling here, I'm a bit confused about the "one heap" thing--
having cleaned up after many a party, I understand the need for a bit of organization.
I would also like to state that I never embraced the term witch until I realized that my speeches would be countered with that designation--to paraphrase a famous quote, it was not me who called me "witch" but others deemed me so.
I just use it as a sort of short cut--and, I confess it is kind of litmus test at times to the capacity of understanding of the people with whom I'm trying to maintain a conversation.
I confess too, that I don't particularly like the term "mission-haughty Christianity" either. It's just a tad unnecessarily inflammatory for my taste. (and nodding, trust me, I've had the missionaries knocking at my door, but there comes a point where you find the intent endearing--it's done out of love, afterall)
But as with all things, perception is subjective--
I think wisdom is filtered through layers of human history and understanding of archetype-"normality" as a general consensus-and if you truly feel validated in your chosen path, the only evidence others have to go by is the example of the truth of your very being--and I have been, much admittedly a poor example, or "witness" to my faith.
I don't believe in superiority.
The symbolic "Jacob's ladder", to my perception, does not go up, but is a series of archetype and mythology laid upon its side--as a bridge across an abyss.
Blessed be and God bless, Ess.
(and thank you)
