Your Crowning Glory...
Those curious locks so aptly twin'd, Whose every hair a soul doth bind. ~Thomas Carew
Did you realize that your hair, or "crowning glory" is one of the most indestructible parts of your body? As such, it is believed that a sudden loss of hair is unlucky, forecasting a decline in health, loss of property or failure in business, or the death of a closely related child. Red hair is associated with fiery tempered people (of which I can personally attest to since I was born with red hair, which has since "faded" with age); black and dark brown hair indicate strength; and fair hair implies timidity.
On a man, if the hair grows low on the forehead and back above the temples he will have a long life; if a woman's hair grows in a low point on her forehead (a widow's peak) she will outlive her husband, and if a woman suddenly develops curls on her forehead it is said her man has not long to live.
Lank (long, straight and limp) hair denotes a cunning nature; Curly haired - good natured and full of fun; Long hair - strength and luck.
It's said to be unlucky to have your hair cut when the moon is in the wane as this will cause it to fall out and lose its lustre. Don't attempt to cut your own hair lest you want to tempt fate.
Would you like to determine your future? Set fire to some strands of your hair (cut them off first please!). If they burn brightly, you are in for a long life. If they splutter and smoulder, it is said to be a death omen. Never pull out grey hairs, for one will be replaced by ten. It has often been believed that a sudden fright can turn hair white.
You need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. A village means that you are not alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the earth, there is something that belongs to you, waiting for you when you are not there. ~Casare Pavese

My Sexton's Hail From Limerick
Never permit yourself to become the weak link in the chain of your generations.
Welcome! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in and relax with me awhile. As you'll notice, I am captivated by ancient times, a soul misplaced in this modern day. I have a love for my ancestry and I believe people who grow up without a sense of how yesterday has affected today, are unlikely to have a strong sense of how today affects tomorrow.
