When discussing truth, we often associate the truth about ourselves, which is often unknown. We gather truth through our senses, such as sight. A man of 70 may feel as young as he did 40 years ago, mentally, but his reflection reminds him of just how old he is.

Magpie Fairy - Discarded as rubbish, or accidentally lost, she finds them irresistible and adorns herself with them. Obviously because she is very tiny, the objects are depicted larger than life.

Original trolls that appear in countless tales of Norse mythology seem to be descended from the Jotun. The Jotun were a race very similar to the Titans of ancient Greece. They were sworn enemies of the gods and separated from humans in remote hills, mountains, and forests only through the diligence of the Norse gods where they awaited the end of the world when they would finally battle the Norse gods on an even playing field. Trolls are very similar in their homes as the Jotun or Giants.

* * CAT SNIP: Bringing Up Baby: The ASPCA has some good advice for people who think they need to give up their cat when a new baby arrives. As they point out, cats can be like " little old maids". They don't don't like change, but can adapt easier if beforehand, you give them extra attention. Looks like these two are already aware of what's going on. And no they're not trying to incorporate the babe into 'future' evil plans. LoL
