HEXE is the German word for witch.  She is the Crone, the grandmother, the scary old woman who lives in the neighborhood.  She is old age and wisdom.  Her strength is her large healing hands and her well worked shoulders built from the blade of a hoe that has delved in the earth, planting seed and tending to growth.  Her fairy wings are fashioned from soles of shoes that move her through time.  Her apron is a fossilized seashell. Her spirit has been active since before the time of humans.
