per amica silentia lunae

or, across the ferny brae with the evil voodoo celt

I know some of my LJ friends are having a rough time of it. In hopes of helping out some small bit, here's a neat video version of a poem by Neil Gaiman:

It's what to do if you find yourself in a faerie tale, but I think it helps in "real life", too...

why you prescient little minx...

I was just thinking about that poem, and had been meaning to write to you to remind me where it was from so I could read it again. :D

*happy monkey*

Re: why you prescient little minx...

and so we both win! yay!

Re: why you prescient little minx...

Oh, and it's in his collection "Fragile Things", which is great!

Re: why you prescient little minx...

yet another book I will rush out and buy when I am no longer averse to buying new books that will then require packing.:)

Re: why you prescient little minx...

Until that time, here is a text copy for reference:


I'd never actually heard or read that before...but I like it. (Then again, I'm a fan of Gaiman. I need to catch up on a lot of his stuff, but Neverwhere and Stardust both remain two of my favorite novels.)

I tend to enjoy fairytales, no matter what age I am. I'm especially fond of the more 'grown-up' ones I can get now, that are more complex. Some of this also reminded me of Spirited Away. (Have you seen that? If not, you should! It's my fav. of the Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli ones...)

"Instructions" is from "Fragile Things", which is a collection of his short stories, poems and the like. Well worth reading.

And I love "Spirited Away"!
