I’ve been working for Vivienne for a few months now. I’ve finally settled in have more time to write, so here we with what I hope will be the first of many regular updates.
OK, so you know that I provide IT support for a witch?
I still haven’t got used to the whole magical thing.
At the beginning I didn’t actually think that she believed in all the hocus-pocus and magical talk. I thought that her business was a scam. I thought that she would pretend to read someones fortune and tell them what she thought that they wanted or needed to hear.
But, the thing is, she believes it … all.
She also talks to me as if I believe this stuff, and has even sent me on a spell casting course to help me provide authenticity when I write the copy for the websites. I think that she also felt that I might learn something.
I don’t believe in all the mumbo-jumbo, but when you start hanging around with people, you do start picking up their attitudes – positive and negative.
One thing I have started to do is become more aware of coincidences. In fact, I have recently started writing them down here. You know the sort of thing, you think of someone and they knock on the door or you are thinking of something specific, switch on the radio and the presenter is chatting about it etc. etc. etc.
Maybe you should do the same?
Earlier today I was thinking about Merlin. (That’s a little joke. His name was something more innocuous like Robby but that doesn’t fit with the narrative, and anyway I need to preserve everyones anonymity here).
I was providing some consultancy services for his ‘spiritual website’. Vivienne has a wide range of contacts, and periodically offers my SEO services to other practitioners. This is more to check out the quality of the opposition than to help them out.
I was vaguely thinking about improvements that could be made (but probably won’t be) to his website when he rang.
Maybe, but then he told me that he wanted a new logo: a black cat.
I thought that it was a bit obvious on a spiritual website, and suggested something more original, but what freaked me out was that I dreamed about a black cat last night.
