My experiences with faeries have varied from those in the forest, to those in the water (particularly the White River), to those in my bonfires that aren't hardly even visible until you take a picture and discover faces in the fire (which is considerably higher in the photo than it actually was when it was taken). I sometimes hear their music playing not-so-far away and even receive occasional harassment to leave them treats outside.
I enjoy going to Faeries, Sprites, and Lights each year and this year I'm looking forward to bringing some friends and children along with me, including my 4 year old niecelet, who kisses flower buds to encourage them to open. I hope to make this event a yearly tradition for her and for anyone else who comes along.
[Wow, I see a face in the Faerie Fire! Thanks, Aly!
