gather here.



when grandie v and i

have finished building our indoor winter fairy village

 with jewels and feathers and sparkles, a flower vine swing, love tape, and puff ball beds

it is very important to write about it and invite them to move in tonight. 

“when I sound the fairy call, gather here in silent meeting,

chin to knee on the orchard wall, cooled with dew and cherries eating.

merry, merry, take a cherry, mine are sounder, mine are rounder,

mine are sweeter for the eater, when the dews fall, and you’ll be fairies all.”

 -emily dickinson





miss kennedy you are invited to my birthday party.

she worked very hard on this

for such a long time

what an effort this took to create

asking me

how to spell each word

letter by letter

putting it in an envelope

sealing it

giving it to me to open and read


big smiles on both sides.


i don’t know that it’s even her birthday.


“effort only fully releases its reward

after a person refuses to quit.”
