|A rare image of Baba Yaga being comforted by a Leshy (Artist sadly unknown)|
This week's question and answer (via poet and oracle Taisia Kitaiskaia* of The Hairpin):
The consensus readers and commenters have had on reading this is basically PLEASE PUT THESE IN A BOOK! WE NEEDS THIS ON OUR BEDSIDE TABLES! (yes - needs with an 's'!) I couldn't agree more:
- @Lady Humungus Oh yes indeed. I'd buy lots of copies, too, and I'd just hand them out, without explanation. (stonefruit)
What do you think of Baba Yaga's advice?
Want to ask Baba Yaga a question of your own?
There's now an email address where you can send your questions
directly to Baba Yaga herself.

To encourage Baba Yaga to continue imparting her no-bones-about-it wisdom (ok, there may be some gristle in there... bones too), I suggest we not to leave her box empty...
Thank you Baba Yaga (& Taisia).
