Like the Phoenix

Someone I wish I'd known better died today.

Because I did not know him very well this time around, I do not feel qualified to post a eulogy. Instead, I'd like to republish his response to a question first asked of him about 30 years ago.

The question in question was: "Why Witchcraft?"

To which he replied: "Why not the Craft?"

And to that, all I can add is... exactly.

Why not?

Rest well, brief but trusted friend. I look forward to knowing you again.

It's...pretty painful.

Why not, indeed? I only ever knew him distantly, through the occasional post on a list or two and a handful of essays. I wish I'd known him better, too.
