Part III:"The Interview"
GRAND ERZULIE BOTANICA
As i approached the store front the lights in the window went dark, it was quarter past closing time of 8:00pm i anxiously i got the attention of the shop keepers inside. a gentleman walked over turned on the lights and unlocked the door.
i had just walked INTO AN authentic HAITIAN MAGICK SHOP.
All around the shop displayed, large, beautiful statues of saints and unfamiliar deities. i was greeted with a calm, welcoming energy. my eyes started wandering to the large selection of exotic NATURAL roots, bark, Shells, and herbal mixtures. ALL RARE AND UNFAMILIAR TO ME. THE WOMAN GREETED ME WITH A SMILE AND A CURIOUS EXPRESSION, I SAID "GOOD EVENING MS. THANK YOU FOR OPENING YOUR DOOR FOR ME. IM LOOKING TO GET SOMETHING FOR "STRENGTH & WILL POWER I NEED TO TAKE BETTER CARE OF MYSELF" I WAS STUNNED BY HOW HONEST I SPOKE THOSE WORDS, AN I COULD FEEL I WAS NOT ALONE IN MY REACTION, YET ALL THE ENERGIES IN THE ROOM DIDNT SHIFT AT ALL, IT WAS AS IF WE COULD HAVE A FULL CONVERSATION WITHOUT A SINGAL WORD SPOKEN OUT LOUD! THE WOMAN BEHIND THE COUNTER WAS MS. KETTLY THE SHOPS OWNER.SHE REPLIED" DOESNT WORK LIKE THAT" I SAID "OK THEN WHAT DO I NEED TO DO, CAN I MAKE A APPOINTMENT? ONE OF THE THREE GENTELMEN STANDING JUST A FEW FEET AWAY LEANED OVER TO PASS ME A BUSINESS CARD, I PUT MY HAND OUT AND AS MS.KETTLY' HAND MET MINE AND OUR EYES MET, I KNEW SHE WAS THE REAL DEAL, AND I SENSED WITH SERTENTY THAT SHE KNEW I WAS AS WELL. DONT GET ME WRONG THIS WOMEN COULD SELL YOU THE SHIRT OFF YOUR BACK, SHE IS ALSO *THE REAL DEAL* .. i'll let you know how my appointment (reveal) goes~
