Finding Details in Astrid’s Nemeton

Throughout the Faire Realms, we find so many beautiful things to experience. This Faire Season, I have discovered places both beautiful and magical. Of course, our lives are filled with things beautiful and magical no matter where we are, but Faire Season brings all these things to the forefront.

Reflecting on the magical

Reflecting on the magical details we always find in the Fairelands made me think of the place that’s been our home for the last week, Astrid’s Nemeton. So I walked about and did just a little bit of exploring.

Enchanted by Cats!

I was completely enchanted by a group of long-haired cats who were based around a circle of standing stones with glowing runes carved upon them. My Futhark isn’t that good, despite my background, so I’ll have to photograph these and check out their meanings when I get back to the cabin and have wifi. The cats were quite talkative. They seemed surprised that I wasn’t on some Quest. I told them I was just here on holiday, and they invited me to have a play with their butterflies. I like butterflies.

Like a butterfly.

“You are a little like a butterfly,” said one of the cats, “with those wings.”

That made me laugh. “I suppose I am,” I replied.

A pretty purple butterfly.

“A pretty purple butterfly,” said another cat.

“Well, I’m honoured by your compliment,” I said. “And you yourselves have lovely silky coats. Am I allowed to touch you?”

Two cats jumped down from the tops of the stones, and suddenly I was surrounded by five purring felines, all demanding chin scritches.

That was a fun way to spend a little time.

I had other things to do, though, so I headed away toward Pools of Ethuil, since I love the atmosphere there so much.

Lovely, tiny huts!

On my way back around, I chanced upon a couple of little huts that would be perfect for some of the demifae in our Realm. I shall have to get my builders onto making some huts like these: I know my little subjects would enjoy them very much.

Just let me think….

Just let me think: a round base, a tipi-style top, and a lovely tree to grow round the whole thing– yes, I think we could do that in Awenia. My head is full of ideas now!

So much more to do…

But for now, I have so much more to do! And, sometimes at this point, the high middle, of the Faire, it begins to feel a bit like work. I know that must sound ridiculous, since really I’m just enjoying my life and going to parties and finding beautiful things, but the politicking. And the socialising. They’ll make anybody tired after a while.

Glad to have my private space.

I’m so glad I have my little blog to put down my personal thoughts in. I know no-one will probably ever read it, and some that do may look at me and sneer, since I’m a Queen and should have no problems, ever, but I love being able to write things out. And it helps me keep a list of things for later. Like maybe convincing one of those beautiful cats to come home with me. And building huts for tiny fae at home.

But for now, on to Pools of Ethuil, where I’ll relax for a little bit before preparing for the evening.
