C is for Craft
Whether you call yourself a Wiccan, a Witch, a Pagan, or something else entirely, chances are you practice some form of Craft, although you might not call it that. I'm talking about The Craft, of course, what some call witchcraft. (Although tons of Witches seem to practice arts & crafts, also, though not being crafty in that way I've never really understood the correlation.)
At any rate, The Craft can cover a huge scope of topics--divination, herbology, and spellcasting, to name but a few. And even within those topics, the variety is endless--tarot cards or pendulums or scrying (fire, water, or mirror); healing with, growing, or becoming expert in the properties of herbs; candle or hedge or knot magick, the list goes on and on and on. Or perhaps your Craft is a simple matter of ritual, or of praying to your Goddesses/Gods in whatever way you see fit.
A cast circle and a formal altar, or a tree stump and a rock--it matters not. Meditation to look within or cooking with intent, it matters not. A spell to heal the earth or one to heal your heart--it matters not.
It is The Craft.
