The Quintessential Story for Darkening Days

As the days shrink and dark night grows, a particular story rises up in my mind as the quintessential Fall story.

It is a story of seeking light, inhabiting love, and living out one’s true nature.

Baba Yaga, also known as Grandmother Death, is a fearsome, Russian witch who lives in the deep, dark forest.  She is known to eat children and anyone else foolish enough to venture within her realm.  

Like Death, she is a transformational force.
She is powerless in the presence of a Mother’s love and often ends up providing the very thing needed to overcome adversity.

Her fierce and threatening nature serves to reveal those whose hearts are pure, and gruesomely dispatches those whose hearts are not.

My favorite Baba Yaga story is Vasilissa The Beautiful.  I have recorded my version and would like to send it to you.  If you would like to receive this mp3, just do the following three things:
