Do take a moment to watch this short documentary by Jamie Chambers about the folk traditions of Scotland. In particular, it focuses on how old songs and places connect us to our ancestors. There are some interesting accounts of experiences with the spirit world and the Sight.
It is wonderful to see that these beliefs still exist in the lands that so inspire us, but it is sad, too, that they are dying out. We need to do our part to respect the cultures we learn from and preserve their traditions and language. It is a monumental task, and not one any one person can achieve. It must be a collective effort between all of us who practice the traditional ways – the artisans, bards, and liturgists.
