This is not your world. Were you to step into it, My Fae Realm of Awenia, you would change, because it, the Realm, would change you. There is no way to enter Faerie, any Faerie, and return the same. I know this as well as anybody knows it, because I have stepped into Faerie many,… Continue reading
Return Of The Light
I think we choose to celebrate darkness, madly and wildly, until it catches us deeply and seems unwilling to let us go. Once darkness has had you like that, you end up either celebrating it even more wildly, or retreating, as I have done, into a more peaceful world. I am aware of the unimaginable… Continue reading
Season of Celebration
The last three months of the mortal calendar year, beginning with the end of our spiritual year and ending with the beginning of the next mortal calendar year, are always a whirlwind for me. If you start out sprinting, you’ll lose your stamina by the end of the season, and that does no good for… Continue reading
PROM-PIT Spot, Take 1
Music swells, a romantic chord progression working up from the fifth to the one, and then, a calming…. VOICEOVER: She’s always wanted this. Your little girl. Your princess. Your… angel. But it’s her dream, to wear a beautiful gown, to have her hair done, to step out with all her friends…. Even if, for her… Continue reading
I will be talking to the manager.
I answered them all. All the questions. I was truthful. I was clear. I did not mince words or skip things or dance around subjects. And it seemed pretty straightforward. You apply to be in a fairy tale, and you tell them what kind of fairy tale you want to be in, and you pay… Continue reading3rd Eye Perceptions, Aine Marie Flanagan, An Lar, Andore, Apple Fall, Artisan Fantasy, Avi-Glam, Banana Peel, Catwa, Cerridwen’s Cauldron, Enchantment, Hisa, HopScotch, Kraftwork, Love, LumiPro, Maitreya, Moonlight Shadow, Ohmai, Petrichor, Rise Design, Second Spaces, Silvan Moon Designs, Sleeping Beauty, Star Sugar, StarSugar, The Looking Glass, The Plastik, Wyrd
You’ve dreamed of fairies dancing on the moor How gracefully they start: how fair they are But soon, they’re overcome with their own flight They lose the roses nesting in their hair An audience of forest creatures stays But carefully: those tiny feet still hurt If they land on your spine or on your paws… Continue reading
Short Story Roundup
From The Author: Lately, I’ve not been inspired to write a lot of longish stories and have been sticking to single photographs. So here is a bit of a roundup of the last week or so in photographs. These have, except for one, already appeared on my Flickr feed, so they might seem familiar.

So, What’s It Like To Be A Troller?
You have no idea. “Gosh, is your father also your uncle?” “Do you all grow so tall because of troll manure?” “I heard you secretly worship the troll and are trying to bring him back to life.” “I figured you’d be covered with dirt or drool or something.” “Wait, do they even allow people from Trollhaugen… Continue reading
Through Ishtar’s Gate
Through Ishtar’s Gate, the streets of Midas beckon us: We venture in to Babylon Unfallen. Gold sunlight fills the squares, and the shadows Are complements, and not for hidden things. Here, walking is flying; why not dance upon a lion? Why not worship with mosaics for a day? And if the mood should take you,… Continue reading
