it was amazing
bookshelves: life-changers

Obviously I must be unpacking all my favorite books! I read this in college and it changed my life, opened my eyes to some beautiful ideas and meanings about life, feminism, love, and spirituality. There is magic, tribal wisdom, african myths, goddess worship, reincarnation, a little of everything! It was the first time I was able to see that there is wisdom is so many faiths and beliefs and you can respect them without having to declare allegiance to them. If I did have a familiar, I believe it is either an otter or a cat! The movie the Golden Compass touched on this subject and calls them "daimons" and they are the person's soul. I think a familiar is more of a companion, but it has been a while since I have read it...
