There Is Another World

There is another world, but it is in this one. ~ William Butler Yeats

Today is St. Patrick's Day and thoughts turn to shamrocks and fairy folk. In Ireland, fairy folk and other creatures come in many varieties and seem to be everywhere. Dictionary.com has been featuring a slideshow this week titled, "Beyond Leprechauns: 7 Creatures of Irish Folklore". Leprechauns, however, remain the most popular due to their legendary pots of gold!
