The Druids and their Little People… Think Fairies

CreatespaceAcornsAndEat'emFRONTCOVERThe Druids believed in little people and that these little people lived inside the oak trees. I’m not sure they didn’t, I don’t know, I wasn’t there but recently a tiny human was found, so maybe at one time there were little people. The Druids were convinced and probably all of ancient Ireland believed in them. It’s a great legend. Let’s say it’s true, there were little tiny people at one time. If I was a little person, say six inches, I think I’d find a lot to love about a big oak tree. One acorn would be a whole meal. Little people could spend their entire life in the environment of that one oak tree. There would be branches to climb, oak galls to push and play with and there are always little nooks and crannies where a little person could find shelter from the elements. I never believed in fairies, I always knew it was made up but after I read about the discovery of a six-inch humanoid, I’ve had to rethink it. The next time you see an oak, think of the little people (fairies and elves) who may inhabit that tree. Why not? People have grown taller over the years… you just never know.

  1. I just posted some photos of some plants and trees. Wasn’t until after I posted the photo, that I saw the image of some sort of “tree creature” about to walk into the center of the tree. Kind of scared me when I saw it looking out at me. Seems to be carrying something.
