The Green Man and the mystery of the Green Man have been with me for years and years. It began when I was an adolescent–a freshman in high school and a prose project for a creative writing class. I vaguely remember needing to write a prose piece about a color. I dreamt and later wrote about a green man who walked beside me and counseled me as well as an evil brown man. This dream became a repetitive dream that lived with me for years and years and year. I knew I would someday write more about the green man and the nightmare of the brown man. Bits of story would come and go until one day, I lost both. In my twenties I discovered there were Green Men. I saw a sculpture and learned that Green Men were architectural features and garden sculptures worldwide. My curiousity became a passion and I began to search and research the Green Man. I learned others were interested in the Green Man as well. There is a lot of speculation from pagan deity to protector. He’s an ancient, yet modern day archetype. He is still a mystery.
The search and the passion became part of a quest. Mike Harding is a Green Man expert (http://www.mikeharding.co.uk/) and his passion mirrored my own. Mike’s site is one of the best out there in cyberspace on The Green Man. His book: http://www.amazon.com/Little-Book-Green-Man-Books/dp/1854105639/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1339949595&sr=8-1&keywords=the+little+book+of+the+green+man+mike+harding is wonderful.
Future blogs will address other Green Man resources.
Also, readers of the first book have started sightings of Green Men. It has been my experience with many people that once you learn of the Green Man, you’ll begin finding them everywhere. Please comment and post your sightings!
