#3883: A practical voodoo question (fwd)
[Please respond directly to Nekita at the address above,
Since there are several voodooists on the " land", I would like some
suggestions regarding a letter I received from Haiti the other day that
contains a white powder that spilled all over me when I opened the envelope.
I smelled it. It left a baking soda taste on my tongue. It does not have any
My mother and cousin are worried. I told them not to worry. I just use
incidents like these as writing inspirations . Am I being naive? The content
of the letter is a distant cousin who asked me money to buy furniture for a

letter from Haiti? I am fine. I have not had any reaction to the "powder" yet.
I would like to get Corbeeters' reactions on this powdered letter.
