bringing sand to the beach

Affordable Basics for a New Witch

A Wand - 

Fasten your own out of a stick from your favorite tree (don’t cut a branch without asking the tree first). Paint a chopstick with colors that inspire you and your magic. Tie a pretty ribbon to the end.

A Chalice -

Used to represent water or make offerings to whomever you choose. Find a  dish that can hold water. Find a lovely shot glass at a thrift store. Use a mug or old bowl you fancy.

Blackbook or Book of Spells -

A place to keep notes throughout your journey. Keep track of ways you feel when interacting with different magickal things in your environment and in nature. Keep track of your progress and journal what you wish to someday accomplish in your craft.

Altar Cloth - 

Use a bandana in colors you enjoy. Cut some cloth from an old shirt that doesn’t fit anymore. Paint and old pillow case.

Stones - 

Find stones that draw you in when you walk around in nature. Go to a beach and pick a few stones that speak to you. Invest in your first quartz stone, useful for almost any purpose and to develop your magick ability. Display them on a windowsill or somewhere you can see them everyday.

Jars -

Use containers found around your house. Old salsa jars. Soap tins. Match boxes. Decorate them to your fancy with stickers, paint, or markers.

! Tips !

- Gather things for your environment. Pick up rocks, sticks, and feathers from a walk through nature. Bring a jar to the beach to take home some sand.

- String goes a longer way. Macramé your stones to hang them around your room. Tie closed notes for yourself or your friends. Braid strings and tie them around your jars for decoration or for labels.

- Salt is useful for all starts of spells starting off, as it’s cleansing property makes it easier to start fresh in any environment. It is also cheap and can be found in most households.

Remember that beginning anything is difficult. Don’t give up, and never let physical objects stand in your way. Send out good vibes and they are sure to come back to you.

ok kurt grew up in germany, which is nearly landlocked, so imagine the gang taking a day off and bringing him to the beach. a white sands new york beach for the first time in his life.

  • they try to sneak out at first- little do they know jean already got charles’ permission
  • pietro and jubilee both want to drive
  • scott ends up driving, in his own(!!!!!!) new(!!!!!!!!) car (like in xme)
  • storm makes sure it’s sunny
  • jean doesn’t let anyone leave the car until they put on sunscreen
  • jubilee brought an umbrella
  • scott sat under that umbrella the whole time, relaxing
  • storm brought her on towel - jubilee packed everyone else’s - and she sunbathed the entire time
  • jean used her powers to make sure no humans saw them
  • pietro gets a really bad sunburn all over his shoulders and face
  • pietro also starts a splashing war with jubilee
  • he splashes jean and regrets it
  • KURT!
  • he sees the ocean and is in awe. he drops his towel and cant talk for a whole minute
  • he’s tearing up - more at the notion that he has friends that would do this for him - and storm punches him
  • ororo “if you cry i will too” munroe
  • kurt finds a periwinkle shell and things its the coolest most beautiful thing. “shells must be rare”
  • this prompts pietro to speed around the beach and get a bunch of shells of all types, partly because he wants to prove kurt wrong, and partly because he thinks kurt’s reaction to them is pretty cute and wants to see it again
  • while pietro , jubilee, and jean are swimming, scott lets storm and kurt bury him in sand
  • eventually jean drags kurt down to the water. “we brought you here to swim!”
  • kurt doesn’t quite want to go in. he teleports up the beach every time a wave hits
  • pietro gets him in eventually by showing him how to jump waves
  • im not saying they held hands while they did it, but yes i am
  • jubilee ended up tripping kurt and making him dunk
  • they watch the sun set up on the beach and they’re all exhausted but happy
  • it was a good day

someone write a fic

My father picked me up from school one day, and we played hooky and went to the beach.
It was too cold to go in the water, so we sat on a blanket and ate pizza.
When I got home, my sneakers were full of sand, and I dumped it on my bedroom floor.
I didn’t know the difference.
I was six.
My mother screamed at me for the mess, but he wasn’t mad.
He said that billions of years ago, the world shifting and the oceans moving brought that sand to that spot on the beach, and then I took it away.
“Every day,” he said, “we change the world,” which is a nice thought until I think about how many days and lifetimes I would need to bring a shoe full of sand home until there is no beach, until it made a difference to anyone.
Every day, we change the world, but to change the world in a way that means anything, that takes more time than most people have.
It never happens all at once.
It’s slow.
It’s methodical.
It’s exhausting.
We don’t all have the stomach for it.

Every day,” he said, “we change the world,” which is a nice thought
until I think about how many days and lifetimes I would need
to bring a shoe full of sand home until there is no beach,
until it made a difference to anyone.
Every day, we change the world, but to change the world in a way that means anything,
that takes more time than most people have. It never happens all at once.
It’s slow. It’s methodical. It’s exhausting.

Black human vs police.
Medical examiner please bring the white sheet.
Paid leave on a white sand beach.
Not guilty that was the verdict that was reached.
Badge check, gun check back on the street.
