The 'Wee Folks' Christmas Special. Revisited.

And thus, Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess, Geoffrey the garden gnome, and their wee son, Einahalk, rejoiced in the warm, reassuring glow of the twinkling Christmas lights.
The 'wee folks', such wondrous, magical creatures, had come in from the cold and gathered in the comfort of the living room.   All different, all equal, celebrating the magic of a special time.
Such diversity.  Their's is a world where all is possible and no judgement is ever passed.
See the joy, the sheer delight on the faces of the wee folks.  They know that life should be a celebration of all that is good.
And the party continued.  They danced and they sang to sweet tunes of love, hope and understanding.
In the above photograph are Venetia, the sister of Fidelina, and bridesmaid from the enchanting wedding of Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess and Geoffrey, the garden gnome.  Standing beside her is the 'best gnome',  Teagan.  There was a hint of romance between the two of them at the magic-filled wedding on the first day of summer.  Note the gnome in the background, Yrag, who is the best friend of Teagan.
And here is a happy little monkey, with his great long arms, wrapped over a couple of friendly garden gnomes. Nice tinsel effect, happy little monkey.
Dreams can come true.  Dare to believe in yourself.  Fidelina, Geoffrey and their beautiful little boy, Einahalk, wish you a peaceful, happy and so very positive Christmas.
And the wee folks gazed out the window.  They looked out, looked up, at moon drenched sky.  Tis a marvel to behold the shining orb through winter branches.  Soon they would leave.  Return to their world of love and peace. 
Their message to us is simple, yet profound.  For the wee folks live in their wee world, where stigma, labels and the passing of judgement, are bizarre and baffling concepts.  May we learn from them.   Let us celebrate and rejoice the diversity of mankind.  And just like in their world, we can truly be, all different, all equal.

My dear friend, this was a posting from last Christmas.  During the uncertain times that have been encountered in my house and the fact I'm struggling to focus, I do so hope that you will share in the joy and the wonder of the message in this reposting.   In kindness and hope for a better way, for you, for my son, for all of us.


  1. The wee folk taught me long ago that anything is possible if we keep hope alive.

    Bless them and you in this celebration of enlightenment, hope and love, dear Gary.

  2. A perfect world existing in the moonlight, in a blip of time. How I wish we could all live there. No judgements, what a wonderful way to live.

  3. I wish you, your son, and Penny TJRTAMIS a loving and peaceful Christmas. I hope 2012 brings you a respite from your cares.

  4. You offer us, once again, a shining path to follow, for we can all learn from you and the Wee Folks. There is a better way, we will find it, - and so will your son. Peace on Earth and Mercy...

  5. I'm delighted you decided to repost this. Some posts are perennial, and this is one that so fits the time of year. Bless the wee folks--for that matter, bless us all!

  6. Dear Gary and the Wee Folks,
    Thanks for posting this, my pal. It is good to know that the wee folks are there, promoting their all different, all equal message for Christmas.
    I hope you, Penny and Tristan have a good Christmas, despite all the worries you have at present. Stay strong, Gary, I know you can.
    Please get in touch if you wish. Otherwise, I may actually ring you this time!
    Wishing you a peaceful and very merry Christmas,

  7. Hello Gary:
    What a delight this post is for not only the arrangement of the 'wee' folk, but for the happiness which shines through and touches all of our lives.

    And at this time of Christmas we too so hope that the message of peace, love of others, justice, tolerance and understanding may be spread not only within our own communities but throughout the wider world. Whatever, we sincerely trust that the coming year will bring to you and to your son an inner peace and contentment.

  8. Awwww I do like the happy monkey!! This is a most magical Christmas ever!! Lovely - the wee folk truly know how to celebrate this most loving of happy holidays! Take care

    In peace and hope, Gary

  12. Hi Delores,
    And under the fleeting moments of a wondrous moonlit new possibility, we realise, for that beautiful moment, that a non-judgemental world, can truly be ours. The 'wee folks' have lessons for us to learn. If only enough of us would heed their lessons.
    In peace and kind wishes, your way, Gary

  16. Dear David,

    And, my dear buddy, thank you so much for your phone call. Always a delight to talk to you.

  17. Hello Jane and Lance,
    Why thank you kindly. I so desired that this posting would be uplifting and inspiring in a magical, wondrous sort of way. I am delighted if the message of the 'wee folks' touches our lives in a deeply profound manner.
    May this message be cherished by all mankind. Let us rejoice in the diversity of a world where we truly are, all different, all equal.
    Thank you and I so crave that my son will find the elusive inner peace. For, when he is at peace, I too, will realise inner harmony and contentment.
    Peaceful and positive wishes to you both for a wonderful Christmas.
    In kindness and admiration, your way, Gary

  18. Hi Old Kitty,
    Okay, the truth is out. The happy monkey is a photo of me! :)
    A magical, enchanting Christmas. And the 'wee folks' know how to demonstrate their non-judgemental love at this most magical time of the year :)
    Happy holidays to you and Charlie.
    In kindness, Gary

    In kindness, Yrag :)

    Thank you for your kind wishes for me and my son this Christmas and beyond. And may you continue to move forward with the radiant warmth of hope and positivity. You know I am always here for you.
    In peace and hope, your way, Gary

  21. Merry Christmas!

    I love reading about the wee folk!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  22. This is story full of hope, friendship, non-judgement and love, dude. Good job my friend.

    I really hope things get better for your son and you, Gary. I also hope you keep up your strength and carry on.

  23. Cute pictures. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

  24. So sweet and endearing; needs to be carried forward into the New Year and always. You're a great talent, Gary, Merry Boxing Day!

  25. Fantastic and magical post for Christmas. I love the wee folks and their stories.

    All best wishes to you and your lovely son for 2012, Gary.

    Suzanne XX

  26. Heck, you can post about your toenails and the fact you refuse to paint them if you want. My dear, I'm just so happen to be back! I was lost, well, my computer was dead, but now I'm found. Ah, the joy of having a computer that actually works. Makes me want to do the happy jig. Or is it gig?

    Blessings to you and your family, Gary.

  27. Hey Hawk,
    And the 'wee folks' just love the fact you love to read about them and their enchanting world.
    Merry Christmas to y'all and to your humans :)

  28. Hi Kelly,
    Thanks for that, buddy. I thought this was a most fitting repost.
    I greatly appreciate your kind words in regards to my son and I. I will, most definitely, stay strong and resilient for my son and thus for myself.
    May you have a most positive weekend. And suddenly I've got this urge for a gingerbread cookie :)

  29. Hi Misha,
    Thank you and may you and your loved ones have a wonderful Christmas :)

  30. Hi Dixie,
    Quite right, my dear friend. This sweet and endearing message from the 'wee folks' is a lesson that we can embrace for the New Year :)
    And I want to thank you for putting up that beautiful painting you did from about three years ago, on your latest posting. I hope folks visit your site and appreciate your artistic talent.
    Merry 'Boxing Day Eve'...whoops...Merry Christmas to you! :)

  31. Hi Suzanne,
    Thank you and the 'wee folks' thank you for finding a few moments to come and read their magical tales :)
    Much obliged for your best wishes to me and my lovely son for 2012.
    Here's wishing you and your friends and family, a most peaceful and positive Christmas and a hopeful New Year.
    In kindness, your way, Gary

  32. Hi Joylene,
    Heck, thanks for an idea for an upcoming posting, complete with photos of my, my unpainted toenails :)
    I'm euphoric over you finally getting back onto some semblance of a working computer. The internet, the blogging community and a colony of penguins, were lost without your hallowed presence.
    Make sure you upload your 'happy jig or gig' onto YouTube :) The world will be a better place seeing you dance with joy or shirley... or....Bob and Doug McKenzie...
    Thanks Joylene and blessings to you and your loved ones. Stay warm eh.
    With respect and good wishes, Gary

  33. I was so thrilled to see this post again Gary. I think the magic of the 'Wee folk' will continue for all time and hopefully bring you some joy for Christmas and the new year. Sending all most magical wishes to you all and hope that 2012 is good for you.
    Love Diane xx

  34. What a lovely post, Gary! I hope the Wee Folk bring you many happy smiles over the holiday season. I get a warm feeling inside when I see ornaments that remind me of someone from my past (or present).

    Have a safe happy holiday!


  35. Hi Diane,
    Thanks Diane and the ideals, the magic of the 'wee folks', is something I hold near and dear.
    Most grateful for your kind wishes, Diane. And here's wishing you and your loved ones, a wonderful, magical Christmas and a peaceful 2012.
    With kind thoughts, Gary

  36. I detect the paw of involvement in the mystical Christmas you have presented. Only a canine, a modest internet star could pull this off with the help of his human companion! Many more to come!

  37. Hi Sharon,
    Thanks for your very kind words. The 'wee folks' bring a smile to my heart and a feeling that this will be a most positive Christmas.
    I sure relate to that warm feeling in regards to ornaments and the memories it enhances.
    Thanks Sharon and may you have a most joyous holiday season.
    Much respect and admiration, your way, Gary :)
    Hugs to you (( ))

  38. Hi Ray,
    You would be correct sir. The magical ambience was further heightened by the clever directing work of Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star! :)
    If only one day I could write even remotely as well as that clever dawg...
    Thanks for your pawfect comment, Ray :)

  39. An oldie but a goodie. I hope you had a good Christmas, Gary. Truly. This and other following comments on later posts will be kinda short because I'm playing "catch up" again.

  40. Hi Kelly,
    "An oldie but a goodie." Thanks and I hope you liked the repeat posting, also :)
    Dude, seriously, thanks for taking the time to backtrack through my postings. Very kind of you to do that.
    Christmas here, as you will know, was quiet and peaceful. I know I have much to be grateful for.
    And I know, as best you could, you were determined to have a positive Christmas. That is a wonderful outcome.
    Thanks buddy.
    In peace and respect, Gary


I do try to comment back to each commenter individually. However, I might have to shorten my replies or give a group thank you. That way, I can spend more time commenting on your blogs. Thank you and peace, my friend.
