this is a post i put in daily grail... and forgot to put here on June 2007

I have the overwhelming desire to talk to my garden sprite.. or gnome or whatever you can call it. I know there is something living in my garden that isn't visible.

I have a wild raccoon that thinks it is a cat. I have cat that thinks the raccoon is a cat too. There seems to be an unspoken agreement anyway lol.

I am an artist...soooooooo.. this image of the greenman keeps popping up in my head. I was thinking of pastel or watercolor...

I really don't know much about the greenman. I know that his image is seen in many places.. including Rosslyn Chapel.

perhaps I shall investigate this topic...still.. I can render him on paper nonetheless.


my daughter is going to take some ceramics in college.. I suggested a Green man for my garden...

hmmm...some say he is part cat...

we were talking about

call it a lot of things, skookum. Gee I haven't been to your log space for awhile now and so...

Unspoken agreements are like 'hidden contracts?'

The Green Man is an ancient Keltic deity. Author of spring, akin to Pan, also known as El Hidr by the Arab speaking peoples. Geomythology at its' finest.

Do you know Herne the hunter? Oh, you can get "The White Goddess" by Robert Graves here: which is a manual on 'Poetic Myth.' Therein you'll find 'the Greenman' and other 'poetic' things. Of course Graves defines poetry as "Religious invocation of the Muse." I do too...

BTW you can get Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency there too. Written by Douglas Adams. And, of course, much, much, more. Might help you to grasp some deeper essentials of your being who you're being. Might not. Just for fun, anyway. Nice to have such a resource available. ;)

Nice ta see ya skookum san.

There is green alright in the garden, but it might not be a man or woman you are perceiving, only I suggest a green presence. This green presence is the essence of life as it supports your aliveness here. Name it and attaching it to a form is a legacy bound custom of the mind. bow down before it and thank it and it will continue to support you

One learns to work with all of nature.
