Although I never believed witches were too common in my area (any area I happened to be in), I encountered them so often that I now assume they are next door—or could be—and might be in my own family line. I intend to check that out soon. I wonder if DNA analysis has identified a witch marking? Since we only get fifty percent of each parent’s DNA, the fifty percent that might make and mark a witch could be missing. The heritage line would be there, but not the traits. Since the further back we trace lineage the more connected we are, we might all have witches in our background. Unless, that is, witches evolved into being somewhere along the line—a snatch of DNA here, a snatch there. More later about the witches I’ve met.
