Today I had some fun, imagining a Green Man. If you've never heard of the Green Man, check out this wikipedia link for some insight. Found all over the world, these sculptured faces seem to emerge from the flora and fauna surrounding the countryside they preside over. Some people think they are woodland deities, but this isn't correct, for many reside inside ancient cathedrals in Europe. If you live in an older town, you may even see them peering out at you from the architecture of some of your historic buildings. Their meaning is a mystery, lost to us in time, which is why I find them enchanting.
