The Witch of Erice: A Cautionary Tale
Down dusty roads of recorded time but not all that long ago perhaps two hundred years in the small hill town of Erice on the island of Sicily, there lived a woman, alone, who had not been born there. Erice was and is an ancient village, a holy place to many peoples for three thousand years dating back to the Phoenicians, and it was not all that unusual for people to be drawn to settle in this cliff town hanging high over the sea.
When the woman, named Cecilia Censuales, took a small cottage on one of the out-of-the way stone-paved streets, the villagers noted that she was accompanied only by a small owl and a large orange cat. They wondered if she was wealthy and self-sufficient and, if not, how she would make her living, for it was clear from her somewhat regal bearing that she would not be joining the denizens of the darkened back alleys who catered to the needs of unhappy husbands. 2013 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved
