28354 Hello Belle:

Try Ellen Evert Hopman's "Scottish Herbs and Fairy Lore"; and
have a look at Google books, including authors such as T. F. Thiselton-Dyer.

Oh, Ellen is a member of Goodreads, so perhaps chat to her?

28354 This may be of interest to some:

Dominic Arkwright asks why fairies, once threatening and scary meddlers in human affairs, have become innocent, pink and fluffy.

He's joined by Irish storyteller Eddie Lenihan, fairy illustrator and writer Faye Durston, and folklorist Juliette Wood. We hear how Eddie successfully campaigned to save an ancient hawthorn near Shannon Airport which was threatened by a new bypass. It was, he argued, the portal to the other world of the fairies of Munster. The tree still stands, though surrounded by cars on three sides.

Listen here: www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b016wx2p

It is available on iPlayer (i.e. listen on demand) worldwide, but only for the next five (5) days.

28354 Create a more personal connection when used to imbibe items with intent; it can be an offering to a plant spirit; depends on how you mean to use it.

28354 The Pagan Writers Community is offering the chance to win a copy of " The Demon's Apprentice " by Ben Reeder.

As they regularly give away books by featured writers, it's worthwhile checking out.

28354 Does anyone else here use folklore for inspiration in their work?

I own a lot of folklore books, many of which have proved inspirational in undertaking certain tasks. Some I have followed to the letter, others I have adapted to suit my environment.

28354 Pagan scholar Caroline Tully has just posted a rare interview with historian Ronald Hutton, author of “ The Triumph of the Moon: A History of Modern Pagan Witchcraft ”, in which he takes the time to answer a recent resurgence of criticism regarding his work from within the Pagan community.

He also discusses future publicaions.

The interview can be read here .

28354 For anyone interested in tarot, there is no need to leave the Good Reads site as Dusty White, author of " The Easiest Way to Learn the TarotEVER!! " has just started the Tarot Q&A with Dusty White group.

Sorry I would have posted this on a separate thread, but that option doesn't appear to be available for this group anymore.

28354 On my commute to and from work, I listen to podcasts. So, how many members have listened to books this way, too? Are there any you would recommend?

I have enjoyed the following:

" The Mark of a Druid " by Rhonda R. Carpenter;
" Shadowmagic " by John Lenahan;
" Shadowmagic: Prince of Hazel and Oak " by John Lenahan; and
" Ravenwood by Nathan Lowell.

These are mostly fiction, as I have yet to find non-fiction books in podcast format of interest.

So, what would you recommend?

28354 Rebecca - may I suggest you seek professional help, especially if you have the urge to harm yourself. Speak to your doctor, school counsellor or find a local drop-in centre where they can refer you to a professional.

28354 Simple translation: "So will it be", or in Star Trek parlance, "Make it so". In other words, it's a statement made to say it will happen.

28354 I see businessmen wearing black suits, ladies in mourning and so on and never think they are a goth unless they have the hair and make-up to signal belonging to that sub-culture.

28354 There is no dress code for being a pagan or witch. Dress how you feel comfortable. If you feel comfortable wearing a suit for work, then wear it. If you want to wear an elegant evening dress, then wear it.
