In my journey reading through fairy and nymph research for my book, The Heart Stone Chronicles - The Swamp Fairy, I discovered a fascinating story about a couple of young cousins, Elsie Wright (1900-88) and Frances Griffiths (1907-86) who lived in Cottingley, Yorkshire, England. All five photos are from an article on Wikipedia. In 1917, these … Continue reading PROOF! The 1917 Fairy Photos
Sue shows us TRUE HOPE. Please read this excellent poem and learn about Nick’s story. He is a shining beacon of hope to us all!! ❤
It was already hot, only dawn and I’m melting
The sun in the heavens is already pelting
I want to crawl into the fridge to keep cool
I am staying indoors, I am nobody’s fool.
But in that I am wrong, for I do have a duty…
My son is my boss though, in that there is beauty.
He will understand that I’m achy and hot
He is bound to be gentle with Mum, is he not?
He’s all bright and smiley, he likes the hot weather,
I’m wilting and limp, but I keep it together…
“Let’s garden today,” said my son and employer.
Is that in my contract…perhaps get a lawyer?
He feeds me with honey for energy levels
Then says something nice, he’s a sneaky young devil
He plies me with compliments, even says ‘please’…
Then I’m out with the rose bushes, spiders and bees.

EverydayGurus.com Each month, I ask myself, “How do I promote peace?” The topic of “world peace” seems so broad and intimidating. It really does not have to be unless we let it seem so daunting that we are unable to grasp its true meaning. Do not look at the broad picture only. Keep carving the … Continue reading Peace Through Kindness
