A Great Quote

I was lurking over at the Traditional Witchcraft forums, and found this quote from a moderator there, named Owl:

"Some traditional Witches use a grimoire, which is probably an influence from ceremonial magic, but it is said that Witches by nature are magpies, and will often adopt things that are useful, such as our ancestors would have. However, there are old charmbooks out there, often referred to as "grimoires" which may contain certain Witch arts and crafts"

I firmly agree. Traditional Witchcraft is evolving and changing, because of the a) the information available and b) our lives are different than when it first began. I really like this quote, and think it's important for Witches to acknowledge that times ARE changing, so practices may have to change to accommodate that.
