Voodoo

JJ of A Reason A Season A Lifetime sent me a little blogger gift package a few weeks ago. She's too sweet. But that's another story, for another day.

Today's story concerns one of the items in said package. It is a tiny book (~ 2" x 2"), entitled "The Little Book of Voodoo." Chapter 14 is titled, "Voodoo Abuse." Part of it reads as follows ...

As you already know if you've dabbled in the art, voodoo is a very powerful thing. And like most powers, it can be abused. That's where Voodoo Anonymous comes in.

Voodoo Anonymous (or VDA, as it's now known after a protracted copyright battle with the Veteran's Administration) was founded by someone who chooses to remain anonymous.

Its motto -- "Grant me the serenity to accept what I cannot change and to change what I cannot accept" -- is sewn on samplers in voodoo-practicing homes around the world. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about how Voodoo Anonymous saved me. Yes, I'll confess. I was a voodoo abuser.

Funny little book. Published by The Running Press.
Thanks JJ.
