I can still remember when (a long time ago) I not only had my own home, but actually... I had a few of them. Four, in fact. Four different homes/properties, in four different countries; Germany, Italy, Finland and Norway (though I don't really count that one, because not long after I had bought it, the entire house literally vanished before our eyes (myself and the man from whom I had bought it). But the last house I owned was actually in Salem, Massachusetts.
Mind you, all of these were obviously not only a long time ago, but... one could say, "it was another time". But something had happened to every one of my homes, that made me lose them all, since at that time, there was, sadly, no such thing as "homeowners insurance". Not like things are to-day; as now, one can insure just about anything, all the way down to an article of clothing...
But now, it seems that my wife and I are soon to be getting things fixed in such a manner that we'll soon-enough be able to own our own home again. I just wish that I still had the memorabilia from my old homes, r at least some of my old articles of arsenal from those days. But I also get the feeling that soon enough, it won't even matter, anyway, since if what some old friends of my brother and myself say is correct, then a lot of things are going to end up taking a massive fall, since the fire of Notre Dame (which we all still can't believe "officials" claim it was "a complete accident, caused by bad wiring"... talk about fucking laughable). Hell, thing have already begun to heat up even more, since then, and it's only going to get worse and then get covered up by some jackass in a high-ranking office.
Upon another interesting note, it seems that I now have yet another pupil to handle, beyond my wife, in terms of the Craft, which... frankly, the only thing I'll be able to teach this one is possibly the Shamanic path (since I really can't use "typical magic" of any kind (thus, I had to create my own, a long time ago), but beyond that, really all I can teach a person is how to master their own power)... given that I had to 'forge' my own Craft, a long time ago, and really, it's not exactly something that can be learned or taught easily... one might as well say that it's like trying to teach a snake to be a muskrat. I can still remember the several students I had in My Craft, ages ago, and only a small handful of Them were able to learn, but of course... the capacity went straight to their heads, and I had no choice but to... 'remove them' of what I had taught them. And not in the way that I would've preferred, either.
I just hope that no one asks me to teach them my Craft, anymore, because given where that has led in the past, I don't feel like "doing what I do best" over That concept again.
