All A Quandary




The Stolen Ones are still becoming, footfall by tiny footfall. 


They slip in and out of Shadow, bristling, cowering, wailing, at times defiant of the quiet despair that creeps. 



Change is often a slow and painful process but horns and wing tips appear,


hither and thither.



The Ghastly Governessa casts her haughty glance, always disapproving with a tut here and there.
So  I leave her, barefaced,


with a stick up her bottom.


As I tame unruly fibres and construct skirts of bones,



Gertrude tweeks her tricorn and sighs, for as yet her story is untold.


But all the while owls swoop and the wild woods call.

There's me thinking 'gosh, this is creepy,' and then we have a stick up somebody's bottom! But then we go dark and mysterious again. Melanie, dear, I do believe you're a true pagan.

What a wonderful day to open this page and see all of these comments! Heartfelt thanks to each and everyone of you, I'm really touched that you enjoy the wee folk that swoop through my dusty corridors on their ragwort stems and the irreverential nonsense that accompanies them ;)

That had me laughing out loud! Aw missus, I've probably said this tons of times before but you write the best posts EVER! And your photos are always amazing too. *Tisk* Some people just get all the talent!

Tee hee, Róisín I'm glad you enjoy the irreverence ;) But now the pressure's on, bugger!
