JOANNE’S EXCITING NEW BOOK!

JoAnne’s Fae alter ego, Fabularia, is publishing The Official Faerie Cookbook! Watch for details about the exciting crowdfunding effort for the book! Raise money that will also benefit Spoutwood Farm in Glen Rock, PA!

New Cookbook!

New Cookbook!

Food is so important to Fae folk that much of their time revolves around planning and preparing their feasts.  They love to try unique and interesting dishes, and they are always ready for something new to cross their table.  This book is a treasure trove of Fae culinary delights, with over one hundred recipes!  Many of the recipes are inspired by the amazing dishes I have tasted at the May Day Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm and other Faerie Festivals up and down the East coast. Quite a few of them are vegetarian, but can be easily adapted for non-vegetarian (i.e., meat) palates, or for vegans, as well. A number of lactose-free and gluten-free recipes have also been included.  Nearly all have been consumed with relish by my own family!  Every cook will be able to follow the easy-to-read step-by-step instructions to create Fae deliciousness!

Maya Angelou Passes

Today I am too sad for words, too sad to write anything poetically.  Maya Angelou not only inspired so many of us, her words were some of the most powerful and moving things I have ever heard or read.  We all lament her passing, and we all strive to be half the poet she was.

“Listen to yourself, and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God”—Maya Angelou’s final message

A Song for the Faeries

I wrote this song to celebrate the incredible experience of the Fairie Festival—enjoy!

Spoutwood Faerie Song

Come out, sweet Faeries, come out to play,

To celebrate Spring and the month of May.

The Green Man proclaimed a Festival day

For frolic and fun, both Mortals and Fae.

 

We’ll gather the Tribes from far and near:

Woodland and River will surely appear,

Mountain and Meadow, their air so clear

Bid welcome to Nature’s royalty dear.

 

Flitting and feasting and bubbles for some.

The Green Men protect and bless as they roam.

Fiddle and harp and pipes and drum

Delight King and Queen and all those who come.

 

The Bards will tell tales and stories of old:

Courage, adventure, and journeys unfold,

Copper bells gleaming and fortunes foretold

As Beltaine fires flame and turn all to gold.

 

“Kubiando” will echo all through the glade,

Music and dancing and wings arrayed,

Embers and Magick to light our way.

So come out, dear Faeries, come out and play!
