Do You Believe in Faeries?
Faeries, the Good Folk, the Sidhe and many more Otherworld beings of this type populate the folklore and tales of the world. So such beings exist? Did they ever? Are they an archetype, a memory of a long-lost people or simply that thing that we catch out of the corner of our eye? Have you ever had a Fae Encounter? Tell us your favorite 'faery tale' and point us to it if the source is on the net. And don't forget your pixie dust.

I have no choice to respond to the question of "Do you believe in faeries?" with a resounding "YES! Don't you?" and give the questioner that Look...the one that makes you feel sheepish for asking in the first place. The Fey are the most precious part of my childhood memories, for it was they that brought the magick to my early youth. They protected me from all the harm an innocent can court, and they blessed me with not one but two offspring that (I SWEAR!) are fey in all but wings...and I think those will hatch out someday, just haven't found the right combination of chocolate and what-have-you.
The fey bless my gardens, wherever we are. I am blessed to have their presence in the morning glory vines outside of my kitchen door, and they always allow me the greatest joy of being able to plant varietals that "aren't supposed to grow down here"...Pfft!
You ask for a favorite faery tale? Hmmmmm, perhaps the one often told to anyone willing to listen to my Mom will suffice.
We had a large continous wall of crepe myrtle bushes in the back yard of my earliest childhood home, and it was my favorite place to play. Of course, it was chock full of my "little friends" who sang to me, played wonderful music, and best of all played with me tirelessly until I grew sleepy and sweaty, and just plain ol' pooped out. Then, with a warm sweet voice buzzing in my head, I distinctly remember being told it was time to "go home" and before I knew it I was on the back porch, tugging on the screen door. Later, at bath time, I would relate my tales of high adventure to my Momma or my Nana. I'm sure that they listened with a smile, not really giving credence to the tales of a 4 year old. Then came the day in early spring when I heard the music playing through my bedroom window, and told Momma that I JUST HAD to put on my bestest dress and go to my "Friends". She smiled indulgently, allowed me to slide on my velveteen frock and skip barefoot out the back door towards the crepe myrtles....and watched me DISAPPEAR into them. It was then that she, too, heard the music of the fey briefly as I went into 'their world'. Needless to say, Momma always watched a bit closer after that, but I don't think she ever doubted any 'faery tales' I related after that either.
Now, I'm the 'Mommy' - and I have the signal honor of two fey children blessing me with what I blessed my Momma with, Goddess bless us all! On the other hand, I get to hear that lovely music time and again as my younglings wander with their 'friends'......
