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, no judgement 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's good.
And the celebration continued. They danced, they sang to sweet tunes of love, of hope, of understanding.
In the above photograph is Venetia, the sister of Fidelina, bridesmaid from, The Wee Folks Wedding. 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, 2010. Note the gnome in the background, Yrag, who is the best friend of Teagan.
And here is a happy little monkey. 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's celebrate and rejoice in the diversity of mankind. And just like in their world, we can truly be, all different, all equal.
