The Airts Tales
General Serial Rated:All
Inspired by the Four Elements Challenge on the SWG site, this is the first of five linked stories. (And yes, I know it wasn't a recent challenge, but Life interfered until now; many thanks to Mike for helping me resolve some computer issues, and to RiverOtter for the beta!) I’m posting it here and not there because it really isn’t Silmfic, and because it’s related to my novel, Tree & Stone. “O’ All the Airts” is a famous poem by Robert Burns, the first of the three greatest Scottish writers.”Airts” is a Scots Gaelic word for “wind” or compass direction, linked in Celtic lore to the elements, which provided me with the idea for this series.
