Luck of the Irish!

This time of year there are all kinds of portrayals of leprechauns. Most of the silly, cartoon versions.

These are fairy folk, people. I think they deserve a little better representation. By definition they are mischievous fairies, no larger than a small child. And, I’ll prove it.

My Amazing Progeny!

LOL! This is my son Dillon, at age fifteen months. He’s now twenty-six and could probably pass for a larger version of his little leprechaun self.

    I have always been intrigued by the fables of the Irish. I think some of their stories are fascinating. I have read several fiction stories with Irish lore as part of the story and enjoyed them immensely. One of my favorite series was a Nora Roberts series with the background in Ireland, and the lore about a sad ghost. .

      My favorite author for Irish myth and legend is Morgan Llewelyn. Love her stories.
