Theodora Goss has a delightful piece about Spring in Enchanted Living.
“[T]alking to inanimate objects is Witchcraft 101, and listening to them, really listening, is 102. . . . After all, being a witch isn’t just about knowing how to find significance in a deck of illustrated cards or how to heal a broken heart with a magical potion (alternatively, a cup of coffee and a good, long talk), or how to weave a spell out of spiderwebs and morning dew. It involves being in conversation with the whole of creation. . . . There you are, the witch in spring, walking through the woods with Archimedes or Jellylorum or Bob the Iguana on your shoulder.”
You’ll be glad to read the whole thing.
