What do you think of magic? Does it exist? Did it exist before? Have you ever witnessed an act of magic? Is there such a person as a magician? or wizard? or witch? or shaman? or mage? or magus? or witch doctor? or enchanter? or necromancer? or chronomancer? What was the last magic trick you pulled? Have you ever felt that you lost some magic? Why do synchronicities seem so important? Do you notice things that other people don't? Do you have a strong sense of aesthetics? How often do you get what you want? Do good things happen to you unexpectedly? Is everything the way you want it? Why not?

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft…
-I Samuel, 15:23

Among various social movements of the 1960s, in the massively available space for social action, emerged the organization WITCH like an excited child emerging from the doorway of a house in front of a sunlit playground at the beginning of a summer day.

WITCH Manifesto:
WITCH is an all-women Everything. It’s theater, revolution, magic, terror, joy, garlic flowers, spells. <…> Witches have always been women who dared to be groovy, courageous, aggressive, intelligent, nonconformist, explorative, curious, independent, sexually liberated, revolutionary. <…> They bowed to no man, being the living remnants of the oldest culture of all - one in which men and women were equal sharers in a truly cooperative society, before the death-dealing sexual, economic and spiritual repression of the Imperialist Phallic Society took over. <…> WITCH lives and laughs in every woman. <…> Whatever is repressive, solely male-oriented, greedy, puritanical, authoritarian - those are your targets. Your weapons are theatre, satire, explosions, magic, herbs, music, costumes, cameras, masks, chants, stickers, stencils and paint, films, tambourines, bricks, brooms, guns, voodoo dolls, cats, candles, bells, chalk, nail clippings, hand grenades, poison rings, fuses, tape recorders, incense.<…> You are pledged to free our brothers from stereotypical sexual roles as well as ourselves… You are a Witch by being female, untamed, angry, joyous, and immortal (Morgan 1970:540).

Yes, Sam, I feel like I lose my magic power every time I cut my hair

You crazy witchy woman, why do you let people cut your hair? I, for one, will support you in any endeavor to let grow your hair. Especially if will increase your already potent magic.

yeah, my favourite lyrics by Arcade Fire:

(it's from the Tunnels - about how he will dig a tunnel and they will meet in the middle of the town and stay and live together in the tunnel underneath the town)
"and since there's noone else around// we'll let our hair grow long// and forget all we used to know// and then our skin gets thicker// from living out in the snow"

beautiful, just gets me
