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.
