Keeping A Book of Shadows

The Ogham. ( pronounced OH-am or OH-yam ) , is also know as the Druid's Alphabet. The letters correspond to their 20 sacred trees. The 25-letter alphabet was supposedly inspired by Ogma, god of eloquence.

They eventually became bards, and in the modern world, they are professional storytellers. It's big in Ireland. There's your long answer.

In the Ogham alphabet this spells out the Gaelic word mhaithimidne, which means forgive.  Forgiveness is one of the most vital aspects of our humanity; it’s how we heal.
