Welcome to Jayshal.com, home of poetry, plant lore and other little mysteries.
"Jayshal" is a phonetic spelling of the Scottish Gaelic word "deiseil," meaning "Sunwise." Pronunciation guides for "Deosil" are usually incorrect in both pronunciation and spelling, "Jayshal" closely approximates the Scottish Gaelic pronunciation. In the Northern Hemisphere, "Sunwise" corresponds to clockwise motion, while in the Southern Hemisphere, "Sunwise" is anti-clockwise. In Scottish Gaelic, anti-clockwise is known as "tuathal," and in Lowland Scots (and the Discworld series!), it is referred to as "widdershins." Moving in a Sunwise direction is believed to bring favor or good fortune..
