Magic and Fairy Dust...

We are back in the land of Magic and Fairy Dust
a land created by The Fairy God-Mother
aka me

Every year
for the past few
I have put on a luncheon for a group of 5
beautiful young girls

they are the daughters of some women in my life
and since I have no daughters of my own
I thought it would be fun to,
for one day,
be a mother of sorts....
A Fairy God-Mother 
to these girls...

watching them grow into vibrant young women
offering them a place to dream
to connect
to commune 

(the girl world is so different from the boy world
I love it!)

with the help of a sister-friend
we created a magical world
in which they could spend the day
playing dress up
and talking

it was magic...

the day ended with the heavens opening up
and sprinkling down rain

a fresh baptizing
bringing in the season of harvest
a season of magic

Love and Light

  1. Thank you for allowing us to get a glimpse of this magical world. I love those women who have the capacity to be the mother of children, who are not their own and extend their motherly love beyond their own children. You are truly admirable for that,having the courage to look beyond your own boundaries.
    The photographs are wonderful and the ambiance is magical !
