The 'Wee Folks' Valentine's Day.
'Hi, it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star. You might be wondering why I'm wearing headphones. Fair enough, there not exactly fitting over my ears. However, and luckily, the music is loud enough to block out the inane gibberish that Gary aka klahanie, insists in boring me with. 'Who let the dogs out, woof, woof...woof, woof..!'
Well, it's that time of year again. Valentine's Day and I know what that means. Truckloads of post from my admirers will soon be coming through the front door. I remember last year. There were so many Valentine's cards that I couldn't get to the front door. Actually, last year, there were so many Valentine's cards from my adoring fans, that the cards overflowed up through the hallway, into the living room and onto Gary's keyboard. That was good, because that meant, for a few glorious minutes, Gary couldn't type!
Anyway, my friend, I was out in the garden, yes that garden, the one that Gary calls his 'Oasis in his desert of despair', or something like that. Oh, please give me a break! Yuck! Right, where was I? Oh yeah, so I was out for a stroll in the garden, early on the morn of St. Valentine's Day. I heard a rustling sound amongst the withered leaves. I looked down and there they were, two magical little creatures, known as the 'wee folks'.'
'I like to take my camera along with me on my garden travels. I was delighted that those two, very much in love, wee folks, Fidelina , the beautiful fairy princess and Geoffrey the garden gnome, allowed me to take the above photo.
Can you see the look of love in their eyes? Can you sense their awe, their appreciation of the snowdrop that has burst forth, amongst the dying leaves of an autumn long forgot? Yes my friend, the wee folks live in that enchanting world where no judgement is passed. Where all are different, yet all are equal. The wee folks believe in a natural balance, to be in harmony with nature. You are a person of the big world and their message and my message is simple, yet profound. The wee folks and those of us in the animal world, demonstrate unconditional, unwavering love. If only mankind would listen. If only.
Happy Valentine's Day my friend and remember that true love goes beyond the exchanging of cards.'
