    Oh dear.....I see that Terry the Druid has been a naughty boy. Nice to see he's trying the old politician's methodology of avoiding entrapment by reckoning he was doing it for mummy. Tut-tut... Suspect

    Mebbe he could enroll as the local MP. He seems to have the credentials for it! Keep us up to date on what happens Pete.

    Terry was found not guilty and all charges were dismissed. Just a case of malicious accusation, possibly by bigots who seek to denigrate paganism.(or even druidry) There's a lot of it about.

    Oh the road to En-Dor is the oldest road
    And the craziest road of all!
    Straight it runs to the Witch’s abode,
    As it did in the days of Saul,
    And nothing is changed of the sorrow in store
    For such as go down on the road to En-Dor !

    'fraid not ...

    "Behold there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at En-dor." I Samuel, xxviii. 7.

    The road to En-dor is easy to tread
    For Mother or yearning Wife.
    There, it is sure, we shall meet our Dead
    As they were even in life.
    Earth has not dreamed of the blessing in store
    For desolate hearts on the road to En-dor.

    Whispers shall comfort us out of the dark--
    Hands--ah God!--that we knew!
    Visions .and voices --look and hark!--
    Shall prove that the tale is true,
    An that those who have passed to the further shore
    May' be hailed--at a price--on the road to En-dor.

    But they are so deep in their new eclipse
    Nothing they say can reach,
    Unless it be uttered by alien lips
    And I framed in a stranger's speech.
    The son must send word to the mother that bore,
    'Through an hireling's mouth. 'Tis the rule of En-dor.

    And not for nothing these gifts are shown
    By such as delight our dead.
    They must twitch and stiffen and slaver and groan
    Ere the eyes are set in the head,
    And the voice from the belly begins. Therefore,
    We pay them a wage where they ply at En-dor.

    Even so, we have need of faith
    And patience to follow the clue.
    Often, at first, what the dear one saith
    Is babble, or jest, or untrue.
    (Lying spirits perplex us sore
    Till our loves--and their lives--are well-known at
    En-dor). . . .

    Oh the road to En-dor is the oldest road
    And the craziest road of all!
    Straight it runs to the Witch's abode,
    As it did in the days of Saul,
    And nothing has changed of the sorrow in store
    For such as go down on the road to En-dor!

    Those are Kipling's words Ray, sadly not mine

    It is good, right and just that such tomfoolary as modern druidry has been placed in this section of the TNA Forum

    Oh yes, Rudyard Kipling - Kim and all that. He had some connection with Rudyard Lake down Stoke on Trent way, I believe. Something to do with that name. An interesting character.Smile

    Have you been barred from your locals John !!!

    I am barred from some drinking houses in England for expressing free thought and firmly expect to be barred from many more ... we live in age that has little toleration of Liberty ...
