surprises.

Standard

I spent some time this morning 

creating the beginnings of a fairy village

in the front garden

of a friend’s little girl

who liked to come and visit my garden

when she got home

she discovered the surprise

saw the fairies had moved in

right in her very own front yard

and gave it her full endorsement

 

“the whole point of life was you couldn’t ever be sure what would happen next.

sometimes what happened was good, sometimes not,

but there were always surprises.”

fairies wintering

“Frost grows on the window glass,

forming whorl patterns of lovely translucent geometry.

Breathe on the glass, and you give frost more ammunition.

Now it can build castles and cities and whole ice continents with your breath’s vapor.

In a few blinks you can almost see the winter fairies moving in . . .

But first, you hear the crackle of their wings.” 

― vera nazarian, the perpetual calendar of inspiration

wherever there are children.

how lucky that a local fairy

stopped by our classroom

to visit our fairy house

she must have heard….

“it is frightfully difficult to know much about the fairies,

and almost the only thing for certain

is that there are fairies wherever there are children.”

dance ’round.

Standard

found the fairy woods and troll hollow
tucked away in the middle of the trees

when your eyes are open

there is always so much to discover.

“we dance round in a ring and suppose,

but the secret sits in the middle and knows.”

glitter my heart.

after spending weeks

immersed in the world of fairy and folk tales

the fairy tea party

with magic apple tea, served in tiny teacups

and

fairy bread with sprinkles, unicorn cookies,

giant strawberries, and sparkly cupcakes

all served on real china 

waits

ready to be discovered

by the kinder fairy -folk

upon their return from the tower. 

“fairies glitter my heart with giggles.”
