STORY SPINNER & WORD WEAVER
Welcome to the place in the sky that is for intents and purposes a wee home for my storytelling and creative writing work. For those of you that are just passing threw I offer you the blessing below. For those that wish to bide a while longer, I hope you take some nourishment in the form of my musings and stories, strange though they may be. For those that would like to book a session, workshop or a course knock at my door. I thank you kindly, for I love nothing better than honouring the old traditions of Scotland to keep them alive by spinning stories 'eye to eye, mind to mind and heart to heart'.
CELTIC BLESSINGS OF THE NINE ELEMENTS
May you go forth under the strength of heaven,
under the light of sun,
under the radiance of moon;
May you go forth with the splendour of fire,
with the speed of lightning,
with the swiftness of wind;
May you go forth supported by the depth of sea,
by the stability of earth,
by the firmness of rock;
May you be surrounded and encircled,
above, below and about,
with the protection of the nine elements.
“Rowan doesn't just tell you a story. She leads you straight into the heart and soul of it. She transports you to a magical land, and when you return, reluctantly, you will feel as if you have just emerged from a time machine, still tasting the Scottish salt air on your tongue”. (Jane Burns)
