Actually, It was not my intention to offer a 'different' view Lynne. When I read Jadamz's encounter it was the second time I had heard someone speak of The Fae in a true way. While I was in the vicinity with Hannah, the experience was exclusively hers. We, as in Hannah, her daughter and her daughter's best friend, were camped at a State Park on the banks of Lake Pratt in Wyoming, which is a whole other story. We had arrived late afternoon, pitched tents, cooked, and settled the kids to bed. It was full dark and we were sitting at the picnic table talking. One minute we were sitting at the table, the next moment we were still at the picnic table but the table was sitting in the middle of a ring of trees. Before I could digest that visual and say something Hannah was gone. The last glimpse I had of her she was standing in front of some kind of opening at a wooded boundary that was outlined in some kind of neon purple light and then was gone and so was she. Next thing I knew it was morning and I was in the tent and so was she.

We didn't even talk about it til the next day. I never asked but she eventually talked. She never offered full details, but told me she had been with The Fae and lent me some understandings into their nature. I had no reason to doubt her words. When I confronted this person it was in the defense of The Fae... But the details/Truths came from Hannah. Jadamz's story is the same story different setting. I suspect that those who have true experiences with The Fae are a very rare few, at least since the far past. I also suspect an even rarer few come back to tell of it. But, like you, my knowledge is limited to what Hannah told me and the details I witnessed surrounding the situation, which I have told you here.
Yes, Darcy...that description resonated with me. Thank you for sharing that!!!

Right? I mean these details she was using were totally over the fence and down the road to anything I have ever read or heard.



I was just clarifying Lynne. I have a strangely large percentage of times I speak one thing and find myself in trouble for offending someone about a totally different thing. I have PTSD it is happening so frequently in the last year. I like it here. I'll clarify til the cow's come home to keep this from happening.

I certainly consider myself fortunate having had my experience. I am quite sure that if I had a whole bunch of concepts in my head about the Fae, I would not have been as open to perceiving what I did. It was the research I did post-experience, that was illuminating.

Every word of it is true. I get chills even as I read what I wrote. The P.S is that after returning to the U.S, I madly devoured every book I could find on faeries. Come to find out, and I had no knowledge of this beforehand....it is in the lore that you should never take food or drink from faeries because you will not be able to go home again!!! I nearly fell off my chair when I found out that little nugget. I am very blessed to have had that experience and it is as clear and visceral as it was the day it occurred.
I would have eatin the food and drink, I just would have especialy knowing why, now if I didnt know why I probably would think it was God speaking to me... He doesn't take "no" for an answer well.

I've been to Iona twice but not for many years now and it's the place I wrote my first ever tune that was subsequently performed and recorded. The island has a feel to it like no other place I've been, peaceful, timeless, magical. Sitting on the top of Dun I the islands highest point the banjo I brought with me played itself, something I've never experienced before or since despite playing outdoors many time. Now this wasn't a mystical duelling banjos or anything paranormal just a combination of circumstances. A breeze started the strings vibrating sounding a bit like a hum so I started fingering some chords and melodies producing this wonderful sustained string sound. I've never been able to recreate it.

I found out later that the minister of the abbey heard it in his study and went hunting for the radio that was playing the strange music

wonder why?
Possibly an extension of Annwyn? IIRC, there's a legend that a portal existed between our worlds that men could pass freely, so long as they took nothing. Of course some jackhole took some flower petals back and ruined it for everyone.
