I’m a bit late in posting this as I’m still waiting for my own copy to be scanned (my scanner is broken).
Bushcraft Magazine did me a double treat this summer issue as not only did they publish my article on the Slavonic forest spirit Leshy – Guardian of the forest, but they also gave me the cover. The painting of the British-Celtic forest god Herne is from a diptych I did on an old wooden cupboard in my dining room. I feel honoured that Steve Kirk, the editor of the magazine, would give it cover space. Cheers, Steve!
Order a copy from their website!
I plan to do more on the Leshy theme as it provides an answer to the Bigfoot conundrum. Stay tuned.
I’ve decided to give away for free, in PDF download format, my book “The Tao of Prepping”.
You can download it for free from here – http://edwardotoole.com/tao_of_prepping_free_pdf.html
Please spread the word. The more people who read it, the happier I would be. Hopefully, it will give its readers some pause for thought about the world and their lives.
I look forward to feedback.
At Bardejovske Kupele they have a Skanzen, a historic village, where traditional buildings from villages in the area where brought and function as an open air juseum. This region is famous for its Unesco protected wooden churches
This evening I drove around Lake Domasa on the way home. Due to the early onset of night now, the light wasn’t the best but I still felt mesmerised by the colours of the Fall trees and their reflection on the water of the lake. This little church is one of a couple which sit on the banks of the lake and it looks both ghostly and serene, alone as it is. I love that I can still be hypnotised by a scene, enough to make me stop my car and just look for a while. It’s important to absorb fleeting beauty as it reminds us we are alive and that the world can still please and amaze.
