Oct. 31, 2005 — When Tracey Johnson first moved to Petal, Miss., and opened The Circle of the Green Faery, she didn't receive the warmest of welcomes. It seems not everyone in the small, rural southern Mississippi community was willing to accept a witch who sold supplies for pagan lifestyles.
But ever since Hurricane Katrina, Johnson's shop has been bustling.
"This little town has hated us for so long, but then Hurricane Katrina hit and the government failed them so miserably, while we were able to get relief from the gay, lesbian, pagan, Muslim and Jewish communities."
Bright blessings, all, on this Samhain.
