A new novel by David Boyle (The Real Press, £9.99)
A story about fairies, enchantment, Byron and the mysteries of the English countryside: when 12-year-old Harry Weston finds his unnaturally ancient grandparents dead in 1912, it leads him and his descendants on a long search for the truth about them – what happened before the disappearance of their sister, how was Lord Byron involved, and the peculiar truth about their home, perched between our own world and the mysterious world of faery.

Its all in the trees Priscilla

Priscilla Hernandez has with the music and lyrics of her CD ‘Ancient Shadows’ found a gem of magic in her song the Willows Lullaby which is achieving world wide recognition for her singing, songwriting and her lyrics , produced on a captivating video by the genius of director Hector Corcin.
Priscilla Hernandez: The Willow’s Lullaby – The best bloopers are hereOne cannot fail to be totally enraptured by her twilight world something we all share yet many fail to recognise are those deep thoughts just as we fall to sleep and also as we slowly wake from our dreams, to reality. Spare some thoughts for the willow and beware..
go to find a safer place to rest
When you hear the willow’s hiss
beware if you dare dream neath its leaves
beware, go to find a safer place
It mourns the forest that it once dwelt
It mourns the birds that had left their nests
and flew away …
When the willow sings half alive
it releases all the pain it hides inside
if you hear its song alone
You fall sleep and your soul is gone
This willow has bitter heart
This willow has bitter soul
Priscilla Hernandez: The Willow’s Lullaby – The best bloopers are here

Live Earth rejoicing is everywhere in the Fairies World!
Fairies need messengers to believe in them, those that do believe work tirelessly to send out the news of disasters waiting to happen and the possible demise of humankind.
At last the message about the state of our beautiful planet Earth, our protestations for so long presented through the eyes of our knowing Fairy Artists on their canvasses and through their words, showing that destruction of rain forests, pollution of land sea and air, over fishing, protection of endangered species has for so long gone unheeded and that we need more love and understanding of nature for the survival of our planet for us to pass on the beauty to our children and future generations.
‘Live Earth’ and ‘Long live Earth’ is a message from the fairies!

Faerie Festivals at Spoutwood celebrate Spring
Posted: Sunday, April 8th, 2007
The Premier Faerie Festival in USA at Spoutwood Farm in Glen Rock, PA
The 16th Annual May Day Faerie Festival
May 4th, 5th, and 6th 2007 at Spoutwood Farm in Glen Rock, PA
Spoutwood Farm Center, an organization dedicated to bringing people and nature together, presents this year's May Day Faerie Festival at Spoutwood Farm on May 4th from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM, and May 5th and 6th from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM each day. Admission is $10 for adults (over 12), $5 for kids (ages 3 to 12), and free for those 2 and under. Those who decide to volunteer when they arrive at the festival can request a 2-hour job assignment; upon completion, the admission fee will be refunded.
Spoutwood Farm is just outside of Glen Rock, PA, 45 minutes north of Baltimore, 30 minutes south of York, PA. Parking will be available near the farm.
The May Day Faerie Festival is the brainchild of Rob and Lucy Wood, owners of Spoutwood Farm, an organic farm in the Community Supported Agriculture movement. It began as a party for about 100 friends, and was last year celebrated by 12,000 “friends” of the little people from the area and as far away as Texas. Previously a one-day festival, a second day was added as a response to the festival's rising popularity.
Once again, the festival will celebrate the beginning of spring and all of the nature spirits return to the warm world with 70 arts and crafts vendors (mostly featuring handmade art inspired by the little people), performances by celtic musicians and dancers, magicians, participatory maypole dancing accompanied by bagpipes and other music, fairie craft activities such as faerie wand and garland making (involves a small fee), food vendors, fairie and other nature spirit environments to explore, a Nature Place offering a place for environmental, health, animal interest and other groups to share their vision, woodland gnome and elf tours, faerie tea parties, guest appearances by the Green Man, Shadow Faerie, and others.
Families attending this event have discovered that this event is not just for kids!
The faerie and May Day themes go back to ancient times in almost all cultures, especially to the Celts of the British Isles who had a festival on the first of May called Beltane. It was a time of great rejoicing at the return of the earth’s abundance in spring and the impending bounty of summer. The Celts celebrated the spirits of nature by honoring not only the plants that they could see and smell but also the unseen beings of the faerie realm.
