Leprechaun

 

 

The Leprechaun was a little tough to pinpoint. First I thought that, like so many other myths, it had to do with the mind. As you will see, the Leprechaun has more with preserving history of this character than anything else. I started with the myths and legends in Ireland. First thing I come across is the leprechaun has something to do with the Faery people of the Tuatha De Danann. If you have read my previous work, you know this is right in my wheelhouse. I won’t go into depth here about the Tuatha De Danann, but if you don’t know much about these matriarchal people from ancient Ireland, your are definitely missing out on great history.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

 

 

This movie is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Abrams has done a phenomenal job of keeping what Star Wars is all about.

Asterion simply means ‘starry’. So to the stars we go to translate this myth. Continue reading “Minotaur”

Trolls

Trolls have become  popular these days to describe people who troll on the internet. The people who have to make sure that everyone knows their opinion. If they don’t like what your blogging or posting they will start arguments and post inflammatory comments about why you are wrong. If that doesn’t work they will attack you personally. They will say anything and do anything to make people think you and your information is crazy. That is putting it mildly. I think people started calling them trolls because of what we think the troll is, the ugly being that doesn’t fit into society. As you will see, trolls in mythology have been totally misunderstood.
