Hi Everyone,

new to the site and looks great but I notice from the date stamps on posts that activity doesn't look that high. Anyway nice to find you all. Thought I'd share this link which has proved very useful to me of late.

Raised in both Scotland and Ireland, I now live in Vancouver, BC where I write and tell Celtic stories.  My CD Celtic Otherworld won a 2011 Storytelling World Award.   Happy to join this group.

Hey everyone:
I, too, love the movie, "Pan's Labyrinth." I love the truly loving, yet menacing Pan-like character in the film. What a lot of folks forget is that Pan, while being o God of fertility, shepherds, and joy, he is also a God who can cause fear, which is where we get the word panic. I believe in the Sidhe and more than once, while staying at a Pagan gathering in Michigan, got lost in the neighboring woods with a friend who had the ability to see through the veil between the worlds and hear laughing as we got more and more lost. We were tired and thirsty on a very hot day and came across a couple of hikers who gve us each a bottle of water and then walked away, continuing on their power walk. WE got out of the woods and back to the filking, drumming and magick classes. The next year, we got lost again!!!! I hate being the brunt of a joke from humans and non-humans. Needless to say, we never went back for a walk in that wood again. I guess you're right. Fairies and Elven folk DO have a different set of values than Humans.
