Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," recognizing that faeries are not to be trifled with since ... forever!
Today I missed the fabulous Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm. I missed my Druid Grove's Beltane service. And the event I had missed both of these other two in order to attend -- a Maypole at Woodstock Trading Company was cancelled due to rain.
Except it didn't rain. It's been a drop-dead gorgeous perfect day since about 10:00 this morning. Mad, bad faeries run amok, making Anne pay for poor decision-making!
And so, in an act of contrition and submission to the faeries, we at "The Gods Are Bored" would like to introduce a wonderful UK faerie artist, Myrea Pettit. The artwork above is Myrea's. Isn't it swell?
Here's Myrea's mission statement:
"One of my tasks the fairies have set me is to create awareness to the plight of the world and to try and instill those thoughts into the youngest of children so they will carry them and action them and go and teach others how precious the earth is and teach that to others throughout their lives."
This is Myrea's picture of a faerie trying to turn an endangered poison dart frog into a prince. We at "The Gods Are Bored" had no idea that poison dart frogs were endangered, but it doesn't surprise us.
However, we think Myrea has a first-class idea: Ask the faeries for help saving the planet! I happen to know that if you assign faeries or elves to a little spot of ground, they will protect and defend it. So let's do it!
The only warning I'll give on this is you have to make the faerie want to help out, rather in the manner Tom Sawyer got his friends to whitewash the fence. But once they're on board, they're on board for eternity.
You can check out Myrea's web site by clicking her name above. Also, I've added her to my sidebar for all your faerie artwork needs.
If you attended the Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm, please do not tell me. I have gnashed my teeth to the roots.
