Big find?

22/04/2010

I am attempting to make connections, but it all seems to lead to the same source, my family. I am starting to research on my family’s cultural background, especially their folklore. They were raised in a rural area which most believe in superstition and spirits. I am starting to realize many things as I get more into this. It’s interesting.

For example, I found out more about this Kapre. It’s actually a tree demon with human characteristics. It is usually described as a tall hairy man. Think of it as the Philippine version of a Bigfoot. This creature usually dwell in big trees and is usually seen setting under them, smoking large rolls of cigars. In some versions of this creature, it carries a magical stone that if a human obtains it, that human would get wishes. So, it is like a bigfoot and part genie? Interesting…. It is not considered as evil either. It usually makes contact with humans to either offer friendship or if it is attracted to a woman, it would follow this creature her all his life. It is also believed to pull pranks on people, usually travelers who dare to explore its terrain.

I think this is a great find to me. Visokiy CAN be this tree demon who might be attracted to me? If that is true, then that creature should have seen me at the forest when I was either five or nine. I had only gone to the Philippines twice. Well, that would be quite oldd, but it could make sense.

As for HIM, I am not sure.

Speaking of these two, they had been quiet, but I still feel their presence. Visokiy’s presence more stronger than HIM’s though. I think HIM has left me alone? I hope so…but it leaves Visokiy…

Oh well, I am just glad I found this information. I most dig for more answers! Off to read more folklores!
