Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.
by William Butler Yeats, “The Land of Heart’s Desire,” 1894

With Samhain(Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year), and the changing of seasons, I have been inspired by thoughts of the ‘Otherworld’.

The Irish believed in an Otherworld, which they described sometimes as underground, such as in the Sidhe mounds, and sometimes located on islands in the Western Sea. The Otherworld was variously called Tír na mBeo(“the Land of the Living”), Mag Mell(“Delightful Plain”), and Tir Na N’Og(“Land of the Young”), among other names.

It was believed to be a country where there was no sickness, old age, or death, where happiness lasted forever, and a hundred years was as one day.

The pagan Celts perceived the presence of the supernatural as integral to, and interwoven with, the material world. Every mountain, river, spring, marsh, tree and rocky outcrop was inspirited.
