One of my favorite courses this spring is Authentic Hauntings. Dorothy, the instructor, has made the course educational as well as entertaining - she really should do stand up comedy. She understands that there are people in the class who haven't had experiences with spirits so she keeps it light. She also encourages sharing from those of us who have had encounters with spirits, and yes, that includes me! We've studied ghosts who reside in Gettysburg, Washington D.C. and Baltimore! Visiting Fell's Point will be even more intriguing, now that I know where to look for ghosts!
As a thank you, I made her a 40 page mini-book on Haunting Herbs. In this tiny book she will find a wealth of information including which herbs to use to attract ghosts, which will repel then, how to predict the future, calm the poltergeist and even how to help zombies move on to a peaceful death!
Last week Mycala took some photos of the radishes she purchased at Fresh Market and I couldn't rest until I had my own bunch to paint! We went in last week and they were out with a delivery expected yesterday. It was worth the wait! They arrived and I carried my precious bouquet home. I did a quick water color sketch and think I'll do the final painting on black.
If eaten, instead of merely painted, radishes increase lust and may actually contribute to spring fever! And there is a plant related to the radish family in Germany that enables those on the hunt to find sorcerers! Unfortunately I didn't read about it until I was back in the states, but if I ever go again I'll give it try. I would love to find a modern day Merlin!
A Filipino legend, the legend of Labanos (radishes), tells the disheartening tale of the damage done by misunderstanding and judgement.
