Claire M Folklore: fairy tale motifs (17) RE: Folklore: fairy tale motifs 24 Apr 13


I've always loved fairy tales,& folk music,(although I much prefer the pixies-&-castles sort). I'm even having a garden done with these sort of themes. I strongly believe that interest in one feeds interest in the other. As a child I really thought folk musicians were witches & their songs were spells, & when they met up they talked in Old English!

It probably started when I saw this.

Oh my, the song!

& this didn't help either

Is it me
or does the theme sound like 'Light Flight at the end?)

I suppose the reasoning behind not bothering to correct me
was keeping me from being bored which worked & hoping I'd get it out of my system . I didn't. It's got worse. I still want to be a witch now.

I'd have loved to have been alive if/when the world was really like that, or people were really like that, but I can't so I write my own. I got a fairy tale book for Xmas, it weighs a ton but it's got all the stuff I loved in it old-fashioned language, none of the gruesome bits cut out.

I WILL be back. When shall we 3 ..........oh bum!...... meet again??(evil screechy laugh)
