I think witches are really interesting characters. They can be so many things. Most witches are portrayed as evil to some degree, but I think they can be much more than that. I like to think of them as set apart from the daily goings on of most inhabitants of stories where they appear. They are governed by a different set of rules and see reality from a perspective unknown to others. In that way, their motivations and actions are unique to them, and can be perceived by other characters as odd and, yes, evil.
They're fun to mix in with other magical beings too. Witches, to me, are closely tied to natural magic; it is intuitive to them, whereas Wizards have to work hard for their own magic, with spell books and incantations.
This particular witch is as old as the winds over the rocks, as wise as the breeze through the trees, and as dangerous as the gale that churns the seas.

I used to have an earring. And long hair. Never again, on both accounts!
