December 25th, 2010. I am given a special gift. A walking stick. A beautiful piece of work by Mother Nature, simply sanded and varnished, nothing
I am familiar with the power of walking sticks. I had one in past that helped me through many journeys. That old stick has now become the handle to
a rake. Still in use to this day.
But this is the story of the new stick. The Magick Stick. Made out of Ohia wood, the moment I saw it on Christmas day, I knew it had much to teach
It is now June. The Magick Stick has been with me all of these months, and my oh my how much we have grown together.
The Magick Stick has evolved through many hardships. This is the progression:
-Late December: First Meeting. Sanded and Varnished.
-February: Decided to add 3 stripes of colored cloth to the stick.
-April: Decided to draw on the stick with a permanent marker. Also painted with arcrylic paint on it. Strange, the more I add to it, the more it
seems to detract from its natural power.
-May: Lost in my friend's backyard for a week. When I find it the following week, it has sustained slight weather damage from the rain; the water
getting under the layer of varnish.
-May: Take Magick Stick to a bonfire. Make the bad decision of leaving it by the fire. I leave for a minute, and I return to see someone using it
as a pokey stick for the fire. It is not his fault, I should not have left it by the fire. It has sustained burns to the bottom quadrant; slight,
but still charred.
-Late May to Early June: Magick Stick is put into resting while I try and figure out how to revive it. How can I restore it's natural power?
-Today: June 5th: My Magick Stick calls to me, lets me know how I can give it life once more.
It is decided. I get the power sander, and sand away all the varnish, all the paint, all the permanent marker. I remove the 3 color strips of cloth.
After this, I use sand it by hand. (I used eye protection and a dust mask while I sanded it, if you were wondering)
I look upon my friend. He has never looked this powerful. He has been reborn, he is only natural wood now, no artificial additions. He has passed
the trials of water and fire. Magick Stick has returned.
He couldn't have come at a better time. There is only 8 days left for me in this dimension. We have much to accomplish.
