”When a new baby laughs for the first time a new fairy is born, and as there are always new babies there are always new fairies.” -J. M. Barrie, Peter & Wendy (1911), Ch. 17.
I’ve always been really drawn to fairy tales and fairies in particular. I remembered this quote from Peter Pan above when I heard Aurora laugh for the first time and I could very well relate to Mr Barrie’s words. The first laughter was actually the loveliest sound I’ve ever heard, so sincere and whole-hearted, no wonder something magical happens.
According to many tales, fairies live in the forests, in small nests in trees. They are invisible for most of the people, but for those that believe, they leave small hints of their existence. I’m quite convinced this is true and when walking deep in a forest, many times I’ve felt their magical presence.
My fact oriented husband asked me once that how can be so sure that fairies and magic exists. Writer Skye Alexander in her book Fairies: The Myths, Legends & Lore (2014) puts it quite nicely:
”Science seeks to explain everything—but maybe we don’t want everything explained. We don’t want all the magic to go out of life. We want to remain connected to the secret parts of our inner beings, to the ancient mysteries, and to the most distant outposts of the universe. We want to believe. And as long as we do, the fairies will remain.”
In our blog we search and explore the world of the fairies and we go to places that we think might be magical enough for them to live or pass by. Follow our moments at Fairy Seeking category and please comment if you have new cool ideas for us.
