Once Upon A Time
Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our child

Lunar Eclipse—Wed Night/Thurs 3 a.m. PST (10/8-9/2014)
Before the internet and CNN there had to be a way for important news to be widely disseminated—like bulletins about the imminent end of the world.

Amongst the Elves and Fae
“Where is the breadcrumb trail of fairytales, and breath of mother nature? We have grown blind to ancestors and their lore, surrendered to fantasy what we believed before. Yet still we dream of elves and fae, of fluttering twilight sprites and lords of timeless halls; we long for lands where battles are won with bow and arrow, skies belong to eagles, and fields feel the flow of magic under the grass. How have we come so far, and how to go back?”
