It’s that time of year again when we celebrate a beautiful day dedicated to the fairies! Fairy day is a holiday celebrated all around the world from the imagination of artist Jessica Galbreth. I remember seeing her work back when I first became aware of the Fae and it really inspired me to look more into the world of fairies. Every year I’ve tried to acknowledge this day as a reminder that there’s always time to appreciate the magic in our lives. Celebrate today by looking closely at the magic around you. Those who don’t look for magic will never find it.
The Official Fairy Day website has been taken down but I managed to find an excerpt on the Fae Magazine site.
There is a veil between the worlds
Years ago, what would seem like many to those of us of mortal blood, but what is really just a twitch of time to the ageless stars and eternal moons, the world of mortal and the world of fairy were separated. Mortal man had become too populous, too jaded, too fast for the easier, more genteel pace of the fairy blooded, so they chose to leave this place and create their own They live now in another level of our world where a veil of magic has been created to divide us from them and keep their lives free of our hectic, desperate struggle to progress. A level close enough for them to keep watch over us, to keep our imaginations alive with periodic night rides through the countryside, witnessed by the lucky few staring out of misty windows on a night seemingly burdened with insomnia. The worlds are so alike, so close in kind they might even be seen as parallel worlds, if not for the beings that inhabit them. Their world is the stuff of legend for our world. The winged and horned and magic creatures unlike any we know here. The beings of rock, of water, of air and fire and spirit.
Have a beautiful day faeries!
