Godspeed Morning Glory

Morning_Glory_ZellBlessings upon our High Priestess of the Goddess Morning Glory Zell who embarked upon her silver ship to the Summerlands this evening, Tuesday May 13th, 2014 at 5:42 p.m.

I met Otter (later Oberon) and Morning Glory sometime in the mid- 80s. I was hanging out with a group of Wiccans and Thelemites and other assorted ne’er-do-wells in a park outside Indianapolis, doing what young people do, when the couple and some other stragglers entered our circle, dressed in wizard robes and flower crowns, like a psychedelic fusion of Haight-Ashbury and Camelot.

They were out there, you know what I mean? And I dug them for it.

They were putting on a show and loving every minute of the attention that attracted, but damn, they were charismatic.

I took to them immediately and had a fascinating discussion with Otter about black holes and cosmic energies while Morning Glory absentmindedly braided my hair.

We spent maybe thirty minutes together, but I felt a real kinship with them. Of course I was out of my head on some killer ‘shrooms, so that might have had something to do with our bonding experience.

Hearing of Morning Glory’s passing this morning took me back to those misspent days of youth. I’ve traveled far and away from that carefree spirit I was then. It was always reassuring to know that Oberon and Morning Glory were still out there in the thick of it, living the dream and weaving magick under the stars.

She will be well and truly missed.

Godspeed, Morning Glory.
