Day 211

29 Jul

“All I know is a door into the dark.” Seamus Heaney

If a magpie comes to your door and looks at you, it is a sure sign of death. Nothing can be done to avert the doom. – Old Irish superstition.

    Um, you know I am loving the Irish superstition! Magpies are often associated with bad luck and evil. A Scottish belief is that every magpie has a drop of the devil’s blood under it’s tongue. I love the picture, as well! Very ominous…

      Thanks Marie. Yes, I know magpies are associated with bad luck here, too – didn’t know about that Scottish belief though! Fantastic stuff. 🙂
