whenever people talk about elves and dragons and demons I tend to
understand the nature of the beings they are describing. I feel
akin to the spiritual and fantastic, the magical, and have since
I was quite young. I couldn't imagine, for example, why the Wiccans
with whom I was studying had us carrying iron nails into our
visualization romp into the Faerie, since as far as I was
concerned we were going to visit my *family*.  :> the elves
understood, I told them we'd come in with some humans and that
we were using their queer customs. 

the demonic seems to me merely the more gruff and/or less
Christian-hospitable members of that family (mostly on account
of the Church and people who dislike the spirit world). some
are of course just assholes, but I've never been concerned
when interacting with such spirits. I just treat them like I
would treat a human being that was being corrosive, getting
away from them and resisting their corrosion.

I'd say it was the power and the indignation I like most. their
edge-of-human-experience wildness. like interacting with some
ranger of consciousness or a slighted and wounded animal. they
seem to trust me and I care for them.

blessed beast!
