This is also a very empowering and humbling way to consider #magic and #language. This goes well beyond the "hurhur, don't give the fey your name" trope. Many wield the power in their words in a raw and unrecognized way.
A muttered curse about someone's appearance overheard can ruin someone's day, a thoughtful comment can lift someone up. Rarely will sparks fly from your fingertips, or mystic energy will manifest before your eyes, but that's because the power and magic of words are subtle and can often fail to have an effect or go unheard.
If you've ever felt touched by a book or changed by someone's comment, you've felt this type of magic. Try to speak concensusly to keep the raw power of your words from going a wry.
@Crazypedia this was a big part that started me on my journey into etymology, the secret meanings of words and such.
A place for serious content to casual interest, discussions, practices, and all things pagan, heathen, and witchy; nature, magic, and self discovery and growth.
