Because of the way she has chosen to practice medicine, The Witch Doctor is not a rich witch.
She is not poor either because, up till now, being a doctor who holds a full time job at any grade allows you to be clothed, fed and have a roof above your head.
Being a doctor generally allows you to have much more than that.
But ordinary doctors are usually not really, really, rich.
However, The Witch Doctor is a great believer that anyone in a capitalist society can become a millionaire if they set their mind to it. All it takes is an entrepreneurial spirit, knowing what you’re good at, the ability to live with risk, vision, attention to detail and hard, hard work. If you throw in a bit of determined ruthlessness too then success will surely follow.
The Witch Doctor does not look down on millionnaires but she does not look up to them either.
She thinks when sees, reads, or hears about a millionaire:
“There but for the grace of God go I!”
Unfortunately, The Witch Doctor’s career choice has scuppered her chances of ever becoming a millionaire.
This is because she chooses to practice medicine in a certain way that is at odds with the millionaire philosophy.
However, to be honest, she sometimes yearns to be a millionaire or even a billionaire.
Because she has a great desire to grow the most beautiful Tussie Mussie gardens scattered throughout all the urban populations in this fertile land of ours.
She thinks tending a beautiful garden makes people happy.
And think of the spells me and My Black Cat could concoct with all these ingredients available everywhere!
As she gets older, this desire is becoming more poignant.
So, recently, she considered whether she could break the medical vows she made to herself all these years ago. and become a medical entrepreneur.
She could not.
So there was only one answer.
To find a millionaire witch husband – someone who through his life had been a wizard with money.
The Witch Doctor might choose to continue with this story.
On the other hand, she may not.
Or she may just ramble on a bit.
As she often does……
