No, not that kind of ‘Brief’ encounter (although they are common too), Kitty is here to talk about fleeting meetings with the real Faeries: The Good People, The Wee Folk or the Sidhe.
Faerie of traditional Irish Faerie Folklore are old and clever, but can be terribly nosey. They are all around us and watching, always watching.
But what are they thinking? Are they baffled by Brexit, or just set on spying? Should we fear them?
In this episode, Kitty looks at 3 brief encounters with the Good People and asks:
What do they really look like?
Would you recognise one if they were sat next to you on the train?
Or busking for coin on Main Street?
We ponder why daydreaming is good for us and as always, Kitty explains why it’s okay to believe in Faeries.
