I arrived in Indianapolis, IN about 1 to 1.5 hours before the concert time. I was greeted by an energetic fairy who quickly escorted me into the shop to Jan, the owner. I was then taken on the tour.
The Magic Candle is what a Metaphysical store should look like. Built into a historic building, it has exposed brick wall, herbs, books, & curios everywhere… and cats. There were several very well kept beautiful cats living there full time, but there were also several young kittens underfoot playing in and out of every crook and cranny. Being a lover of Bast, I loved it! “It’s a Fluffy!”
I only got to take one photo on my phone, because it had died by this time, but I should be receiving some more photos from the shop owner, Jan, soon. I will edit and add those photos at the end of this post when I receive them.
The little room I performed in was packed with shining faces, and everyone enjoyed the music and the silly stories I tell.
I played one special song that I don’t always perform called “The Crone Chant” for the birthday girl, Rita, who was just celebrating coming into her “Crone-hood”. I put her into the middle of a circle of people and we all danced and sang to her! She loved it! Especially when we called her the “Bitch Goddess!” (It’s part of the song.) Happy Birthday Rita! Be careful where you point that newly claimed Crone finger!
Velda enjoyed belly dancing to my new song “Death’s Lullaby (Let the Shadows Still the Light), and is an energetic smiling soul!
A special thanks to Jan, owner of The Magic Candle, for booking me last minute on the tour. It was wonderful meeting you and your beautiful community of Pagan peeps, and I look forward to returning again in the future!
