I was surprised by a friend last week when she invited me to join her at FaerieCon. Everyone that believes in the Fae knows that this is the premier fairy gathering for the year. All the faerie artists, musicians, and writers will be there, not to mention a few thousand true believers.

Needless to say, I am more than excited, especially since I thought that I wouldn’t be able to go this year. When I told Arial, she immediately started tugging on my ear. “I want to go! Please! Take me, take me, take me!” Her insistence was hurting my ear so I gently lifted her off my shoulder and set her down on the counter. ” I don’t know….”. Arial paced back and forth, waiting for my decision. “How would I take you.”  I tilted my head and pulled at my lower lip. ” Let me see, how about I pack you in my suitcase?”

With a dainty leap and a flip of her wings she landed back on my shoulder. Wrinkling her nose she ask, “What is a suitcase?” I felt that this was one of those moments that couldn’t pass without some sort of a visual aid so I started up the stairs. “I will show you and then you can decide if you really want to go.”

I had been packing all day and the suitcase lay open on the bed. “This, is a suitcase. We use it to carry things like clothes and stuff when we travel. You can just lay in there and I’ll close it up. No one will know you’re in it. What do you think, want to give it a try?”

Arial tip toed over the dresses and plopped down in the middle with an indignant huff, eyeing me carefully. “You don’t really expect me to stay in here, I would not have any air, or space. I could not see!”

I motioned for Arial to move and closed the bag. “Well, I just don’t see how to get you there any other way. So you are staying then? The emerald guard could use your help with the portal while I’m gone.”

My little friend hovered, mid-air, with her hands on her hips. “Oh, I am going, just not in that.” She pointed at the bag. “Do not underestimate fairy ingenuity, we have our ways of moving through the mortal world undetected.”

With those last words she winked out, leaving me to wonder just what she was up to. I mumbled to myself. “Well, I guess I’ll find out tomorrow. I wonder if she will be able to get through the security gates at the airport?”

Fun Fairie Facts

You Know a Fairie is Present When...

You hear a whispering of leaves.
You see a whirlwind.
You feel a tingling sensation in your hair.
You have an unexplained loss of time.
You laugh uncontrollably, or feel exceptionally silly.
You see blades of grass bending when there
is no one around.

The Most Likely Place for Fairie Portals Are...

Lake shores
Glades in the forest
Where two roads intersect
Fences and border hedges (this is Arial's favorite)
Stairwells, hallways and landings
Tidal pools
Bends in a road

I would like to give special thanks to Gail Schimmelpfennig for allowing me to put her wonderful poem "Seeking the Muse" on my site. You can read her poem in the fairy poetry section under "Fairies in Word and Song". Gail is Utah State Poetry Society's 2009 Poet of the Year, and I'm proud to say, a dear friend. You can find her on FaceBook where there is a group for the Utah poets.
