Last week, I shared the beginning of my journey following the path of the fairy witches. Please read Part I HERE, and Part II HERE.

The day is finally here! My anthology of poetry and short stories is now on Amazon in Kindle/eBook and paperback versions. I couldn’t be more thrilled! There’s a lot of my heart and soul poured into this little manuscript.
I’ve been writing since I was nine years old — starting with funny verse. Always a researcher, even at that young age (when you had to go to the library! Shock, horror) I was learning about rhyming couplets, sonnets, and limericks. You know, ‘there once was a…’ The vast majority of you will never have heard of the place I grew up in; it was Fareham, in Hampshire, England, and one of my very first poems was about this lovely place:

Cernunnos one who is known to me. Our father who led us from the caves.
Cernunnos is known by many names. The Horned God, God of the Hunt, Lord of the Animals. He can be found in the sacred grove in the heart of the forest, in the call of the rutting stag.

Wonderful information from the Slavic Witch 💜🦄🔮
When we prepare a talisman or amulet we work with the elements to help give it strength to empower and charge it. We know that to charge an object our spoken words are rarely enough. I would like to be able to look at rock and just speak to it and have it be the thing I want it to be, but I cannot. This is where the elements step in.
In our tradition when preparing talismans and amulets we bide by the rule of elements. Meaning that we incorporate Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit into our charms. If I am gifted a pentacle necklace, it will simply hang as a shiny ornament around my neck. But if I take that necklace and infuse it with the elements, I get something so much more out of it.
This object you are making whether it is to protect you, keep…

author Adele Marie Park
DAN: Did you write your story for the contest or was it part of a larger piece or something you had written before?
ADELE MARIE PARK: I wrote this story a while back, then looked at it again, edited it and sent it off to you.
Tell us about your writing process. What is the journey from idea to published piece/completed story?
The idea springs first. It can come from a myriad of places. A voice inside my head, a dream, a news story, even just washing dishes the idea implants itself. Then I write it down, I…

Luna and Sol from LonerWolf share some much-needed wisdom: "To many of us, self-awareness is like a mythical unicorn: Sometimes we catch fleeting glimpses of it. But as soon as we’ve spotted it, it vanishes into thin air. What is this mysterious quality that we think we possess, but actually rarely do? Most importantly, WHY …

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is a nonprofit group which maintains the ‘“Red List” a global list of endangered and threatened wildlife. While they haven’t put killer whales on the list many individual pods of orca are facing…
