Real Life Fairy

Do you know someone as magical as my friend Elspeth? I met this fairy last year when I went back to school to study Art Therapy...she is a ray of sunshine, and lights up a room whenever she enters!

She dresses like a colourful butterfly (although I know that she is indeed a fairy) and wears bells so she tinkles when she walks...I love her.

We met up for tea and lemon cake by the river this morning to farewell one another for a while, for this gypsy girl is off overseas on magic adventures...

I began to make her a little going away gift, but I left it until the last minute (I know, so typical of me), and I didn't quite finish it, but I took a photo to show her anyway...the words say "Not all who wander are lost" and Elspeth said that is one of her favourite sayings!

Speaking of fairies, I think several villages have moved into our garden this past week! Abby came inside the other day and said "Mum, you should see all the fairy houses in our garden!" There were hundreds of them - magical!

For Elspeth...

So she cocoons
And she wraps herself in the sacred threads of her inner life
Which cannot be touched or polluted
Or influenced by the outer elements.
And there she remembers the truth of who she is
And what really matters after all
And the rest just falls away...Jen Gray
