I just woke up from a dream -- I was in an endless frozen field -- probably North Dakota. As far as I could see in any direction was just snow ... not much, maybe only an inch deep ... but then I noticed something on the ground in front of me, kneeling down I saw it was a bird's feather, a small one, sticking vertically in the snow, and then a few inches away from it there was another another, and near that another, and that they made a perfect circle around me. I realized suddenly that the feathers were witches and the coven had completely surrounded me.
I woke up before anything could happen, but knowing the witches that I know, the next thing that would have happened was that they all would have started knitting hats.
It looked just like this, which is somewhere between Minot, North Dakota and nowhere.

That's a wonderful dream. How did you feel?
Maybe they were trying to keep you warm.
I was a little panicked that they found me. Though now that you mention it, I didn't feel cold.
well, you know, they forgot to call ahead. that's a perfectly reasonable explanation for feeling a little anxious.
Witches generally also make good tea and baked goods.
Sounds like the view out my windows right now. Only we don't get the feathers.
You know that is a short story waiting to happen, right?

We had a coven meeting/football watching (hey, the Iggles were in the playoffs!) That was so fiber driven, one woman arrived, saw our handiwork, and announced, "I need to go home and get my cross stitching." And she did. And returned. And we commenced.
"but knowing the witches that I know, the next thing that would have happened was that they all would have started knitting hats."
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! You and I must know the same witches :)
WOW, that is pretty incredible, almost a visual representation of near zero.
Circles are very important and powerful. They may have been protecting you, or detaining you, or maybe both. It really IS a story wanting to be written! And what a fascinating anthology topic this would make.
they might have formed for you a set of wings.
