Have you seen them?
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.
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"; Celia Farran: "The Foggy Dew"; Jenna Greene: "The Soul of Nature"; Enya: "Flora's Secret" and more.
