Magic words


Magic Words

In the earliest time,

when both people and animals lived on the earth,

a person could become an animal if he wanted to

and an animal could become a human being.

Sometimes they were people

and sometimes animals

and there was no difference.

All spoke the same language.

That was the time when words were like magic.

The human mind had mysterious powers.

A word spoken by chance

might have strange consequences.

It would suddenly come alive

and what people wanted to happen could happen--

all you had to do was to say it.

Nobody can explain this:

That's the way it was.

Great Days!

I am really excited about all these connections being made this summer. I have had the pleasure to get a bit closer to several Feri initiates I admire; I have begun to use LJ and Facebook (still learning); I have created several blogs and had personal responses from several well-know authors I admire; I have hosted a few new events here at Dragondale with great success....what an interesting change for me ... after 'hiding out' in the forest and only peeking out at Pantheacon. Wow, feels really different! 

this is me at 30, peeking out!
