It's springtime, and Fearies abound. Let's see if we can't catch us one!
The Leprechaun is one of the major images that the Mainstream Culture has of what a Feary is, or what a Feary looks like. The other, of course, is Disney's Tinkerbell. Whatever Pagan path you may be following, I'm sure I don't have to tell you that neither of those images fullfills the whole tradition of the Fearie.
But anyway, the Leprechaun has a pretty interesting story by itself (or Himself - come to think of it, I've never heard of a female Leprechaun).
So this week, we'll look at just what a Leprechaun is and they look like. Then we'll look at where they come from - and finally the BIG QUESTION - the Pro's and Con's of actually catching a Leprechaun.
I have a story called, The Leprechaun Trap, By Teresa Bateman.
Plus, let's build a Feary Garden - someplace on your property where the Fey can call home.
Be we. Do good. Enjoy the show!
Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Wendy Rule: "Fly Away"; Steeleye Span: "Seven Hundred Elves"; The Harper and the Minstrel: "The Circle of Fea"; Jenna Greene: "The Soul of Nature"; Hobbyhorse: "Emerald Eyes" and more.
