The Wee Folks Seasons Greetings,2016.


Ah, behold the wondrous magic bestowed upon us by Fidelina, the beautiful fairy princess, her beloved husband, Geoffrey the garden gnome and their boy child, Einahalk.  They, from the land of the wee folks, drenched in symbolism, of love, of hope, of compassion.

The wee folks, a celebration of diversity in an all different, all equal world.  

Observe their joy as the wee folks sense the simple enchantment of twinkling lights. 


A fun time to be had as the festivities of free minds rejoice in their passionate desire to see us, the big people, learn of their non-judgemental ideals. 
Their sweet innocence doth be a marvel to see. 
 True love has no boundaries. 
 
                                                                Group embrace. 
A snowy scene from yesteryear in the enchanted garden where they once lived. 


The warm, reassuring glow from within my living room where the wee folks now reside as they pass on their lessons for me to learn, for you to learn, for all of us to learn. 
And thus, the setting sun kissed the western horizon. Evening cast hopeful shadows on the sleepy town of Leek, Staffordshire, England.  Tis the wish of the wee folks, such scenes of wonder would result in the dawning of the new day.  A new day of compassion amongst us of the big world.  

Penny, the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar, along with the wee folks, leave you with some prose for thought.

In the past year
We've seen your fear
Mankind
Not aligned
Man unkind 
Hatred for those 
Who chose 
To live in peace
Make the hatred cease
Make compassion contagious
The premise not outrageous
Peace to you all
Our impassioned call.

  24. Dear Gary, I read your previous post, I am so sorry about your car, I hope it is all sorted out soon. I hope you had a nice Christmas... I guess all we can do is enjoy those fleeting moments here and there where things are nice and normal. I'm sure you understand when I say that it seems over here in the USA, I've been living in a surreal world for the past couple of months. I think I'm in a dream and need to wake up, but when I do it just gets worse! Oh I want to run away and live with your Wee Folk, where things are nice and people are kind. But since I can't I will join you in standing up and making the best of it and hoping for a better year ahead. Happy New Year to you and your family and your dear Penny! ~ Diane

    1. Dear Diane,

      Thank you for such a kind, thoughtful comment, Diane. I'm hoping to get my ridiculous car situation sorted out in early January. My Christmas was most peaceful, thank you. I hope yours was also.

      What's been happening in America, I believe, may well be cause for worldwide concern. Surreal and almost like we're in some sort of bizarre reality TV show. Maybe it's just a dream and we will all wake up to a wee folks world. Immerse yourself in that thought.

      Here's to you and your loved ones see a peaceful revolution where we celebrate and learn from diversity. Happy, hopeful 2017.
