I am a mother bewitched by and enchanted with her two daughters. Their other mother and I divorced, and -for a variety of reasons- I am no longer living with them. I created this site to write them letters while we’re apart and I’m rebuilding my life. These letters are intended to keep us connected. I refer to the girls as “hexlings” and to myself as their hex mum because I believe in witchcraft as a loving linguistic art. My hope is to craft words that cross time and space to reassure their magical hearts of just how much they are cherished, that teach them about who I am and who they are, and that confirm for them that my separation from them was never something I wanted, but was an act borne of painful necessity, sacrifice, and love.
