TBD on Ning

I hear them whisper ''here she goes, she's off with the faeries again"

Hullo there all you would be-if you could be faeries, pixies, gnomes, goblins and elves,
that like to stay and play a while in our wonderful fantasy realm, where, just like children,
we don't need any excuses to join in and simply enjoy re-visiting our childhood days.

I understand that it does us a great deal of good to take a break from our on-going
busy lives and set aside a little time to `get in touch with our inner child',
for this is where we are able to access our Alpha mind state again,
just as we used to daily, up 'til we started growing out of it around the age of ten.

My friend Tina Volk has kindly agreed to assist me with content here,
in a very similar way we did in a Discussion called `Our Get-A-Way Gazebo'
that can be found in Mary Snowden's Group called `Spirituality and Consciousness'
here on TBD.

I heartily encourage folk who would like to join in and post their pictures, comments
and/or replies when they are happy to, and above all to have fun and simply ENJOY!

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.
~William Butler Yeats, "The Stolen Child"

This is a work of fiction. All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence. Or lack thereof. ~Neil Gaiman

and tina thanks for asking me here
'tiz wonderful to have you hear thalia, I am very happy that you enjoy this,
and maybe I am tinkering on the brink of my second child-hood,
but it soothes and quietens my mind at times - especially after watching the daily news.....

Shakespeare's Faeries are Celtic Faeries, in "Romeo and Juliet" he muses of "Queen Mab, the bringer of dreams" - Celtic goddess and the original Fairy Queen. He influenced generations of writers to look from the overused Greek and Roman themes to their own Celtic Heritage. Shakespeare's "The Tempest" provided the inspiration for the next piece; The shipwrecked wizard Prospero's daughter Miranda at the tender age of fifteen surrounded by fairies, sprites, spirits and even specters of death all at her father's command.

Of all Shakespeare's plays A Midsummer Night's Dream has had the most compelling hold on the imagination of painters. William Blake made a series of watercolor fairy paintings in the early 1790's. By the mid 1800's a tradition developed among British and Scottish Painters that continues today all over the world in every known media... This 21st century interpretation of Fairy King Oberon by Johnson is very Elven and martial in conception. Shakespeare's fairies are some of my favorites for creating fairy paintings. Above left is the dream from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Above right we see the quarrel between Queen Titania and The Terrifying King Oberon. Did you know the original King Arthur was a Fairy King?

I can't help thinking this reminds me of something else,
but, alas, 'tis been so long, the memory of it has faded......

...so I better just stick with my fairy pics hey,
they are both fantasies of a sort.
