Do fairies REALLY exist ??
How can you look at this photo and have any doubt? She is real. She is beautiful. And she has landed here to bring joy and laughter to us.
What can be more real than that?
There has been some discussion on other blogs where, because of one woman's belief in all things beautiful, including fairies, she was chastised by a few narrow minded so-called do-gooders.
I do not know any of them. Nor do I wish to make a blanket statement when there are so many wonderful, loving, open-minded people here in blogland. And on Earth. And in Heaven.
But to try to put a damper on what one wants to believe in this all-too-already-cynical-world, well that just chaps my hide. Rubs me the wrong way. Gets my knickers in a knot. Totally puts a downer on my happy.
And to mask their pushiness, they tried to be self-righteous about it. Poo to you...
My belief, (and it is MINE - doesn't have to be yours -) is that God, or Buddha, or the Great One, the Spirit which is greater than ours, no matter I choose to call them...is a kind, happy, child-like, full of fun and imaginative One.
One who give us the gift of talent to put on paper or canvas or clay, or bronze, or..... (or photograph - if you're really really quick & quiet) to provide a visual representation of a heart-felt desire for wonder.......
There, I've said it.
Oh, and PS... I also believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth-fairy, the boogie man, Leprechauns, hard times with happy endings, sweet, quick kisses at 5 am...and the power of prayer, karma, meditation, Tai Chi , Chai Tea, positive thoughts, fairies in New Jersey, good men and.............. chocolate.
