Thank You, Ms. Cannon Reed

Ellen Cannon Reed has passed away. I am sad, but I’m not going to write a personal message of mourning. I didn’t know Ms. Cannon Reed. In fact, until this morning, I didn’t even know she had any sort of presence on the internet. If I had know earlier, I think I would have done my best to meet her. But even though I never did get a chance to meet her, she has influenced my path through her Tarot deck (which I have a love hate relationship with), and her writing. It’s funny how people you have never met can help change the direction of your life. I don’t know if I would have developed an interest in Wicca if it wasn’t for her book Invocation to the Gods (updated and republished as The Circle of Isis: Ancient Egyptian Magic for Modern Witches.

I sincerely hope she finds peace and what ever afterlife she is expecting.
