Interests: In my Last Will & Testament, it states that I want half of my ashes scattered on the 7th Floor of Bergdorfs in New York City and the other half scattered in the kitchen gardens at the Cloisters. That's probably all that you'll ever need to know to understand me.

"You're everything I want to grow to become, Beth. A f'ing rock'n'roll goddess divine, living with joy first foot forward.Thank you so much for sharing your truth with all of us so richly and fully ✨✨✨" Gezina Plumb "Hi Beth, I have missed talking with you! You are a wonderful coach, and you have made an impact on my lifelong habits, in terms of food. First, by removing dairy- i.e. milk, from my diet, I feel so much better. Once in a while I 'slip' and put some milk in my coffee, but the 'glass of milk' before bedtime has... Continue reading

After much soul searching, the Windesphere Witch is becoming the Herban Wytch. I know it's only a blog, but changing the name was one of the hardest things I've ever done. Wytch is the Middle English version of the word Witch, and it’s who I am. It’s who I’ve always been. My biggest goal in life has always been to be a combination of the magical aunties from Practical Magic. So with a push from some who are very close to me ( and you know who you are) I’ve decided to run with it. All of it. Straight out... Continue reading

Dear readers! Introducing my new newsletter- City Wytch News - Come into my garden and sit for a spell! Right after Yule, a dear friend wrote me and said.." Have you checked out Substack yet? I think you'd love it!" I did, and very quickly realized that he was right! I've long needed a newsletter that I could send directly into your inbox, something that felt more reflective and personal...something that my readers could interact with more easily and intimately. I just love writing this every week for you, and I wanted to give it a name that felt more... Continue reading

Every Christmas eve was special when we lived at Windesphere. We had wonderful neighbors who turned into dear friends, and every year we celebrated Christmas eve with them. We'd go down to their house early and drink champagne and stuff ourselves with appetizers and Christmas cookies and then the children would wait impatiently for the clock to strike at midnight so little Jessica could turn the pages of the "Night before Christmas " book while listening to Orson Welles narrate the story. Then we'd open the presents we'd gotten for each other , (Alex always gave Jess a huge box... Continue reading

“ I am inclined to think bathing one of the necessaries of life.” Henry David Thoreau I come from a family that thinks every problem in life can be solved in a warm bath. That may be a little broad perhaps, but I do know that for myself almost anything is a little less daunting after I’ve had a good soak. My mother swore by a hot bath with her Shalimar bath oil first thing in the morning before she went off to work. I loved her Shalimar, I've written about it so many times. My father swore that it...

I am trying like hell to channel my rage into action. It isn't easy when I have dear friends who are losing three out of four parents as I type this. This isn't about not trusting your friends and family members...this is about an enemy we cannot see. If your family members think that you don't love them because you insist upon wearing a mask in their presence? Ask them what their definition of love is? Does it include dying for them? Remember please. Stay Home. Stay physically distant. Wash your hands. Wear a mask and a face shield when you have to be inside, in a car together and in public. Continue reading

Fast forward into this century , my brother in law Peter is a quiet, very laid back research scientist. 362 days of the year he is a semi strict vegetarian, who hardly ever touches alcohol, let alone massive amounts of eggs and cream! However on Solstice Eve, Christmas day and New Years eve, he has been known to ask me for this eggnog and being the terrific guy that he is, I never refuse to make it for him! It's simply known in our family as Peter's eggnog and it's delicious! It's so easy to make and it's even better when served in a punchbowl surrounded by spicy yuletide greenery! Continue reading
