Folklore of fairies helping and terrorizing those around them have been around for centuries. Tales of good witches and bad, young girls caught by villains or heroes, fairies taking things too literally and people making mistakes follow history and humanity through our own search for truth. In this episode we will hear many examples of instances with these “fairytale creatures”. Some of self-appointed bad situations, some curses and their fixes, and some with simple magical and mystical experiences. Sometimes the best experiences of life seem magical or mystical in origin but are ultimately completely ordinary. This inclusion of the magical in daily life can bring new adventure and mystery to anyone’s life. On today’s episode, enjoy the following: The Nose Tree” by Laura J.
