An introduction to Fairyland

If you are planning to spend one summer’s month at my cottage in Fairyland when I finish building it, I think it is a good idea that I tell you what to expect. I have warned you about the strong magic that thrives here and will affect you for sure.

Now, you may wonder about the state of Fairyland, in the sense of whether it is an invented land or whether it exists in an invented time. The answer to both is no – Fairyland is real, as real as Paris, for example, and it exists in the now, as in, date and time as humans track it is the same. We have Internet in Fairyland, some of us drive cars, and we know what supermarkets are, though many of us prefer to avoid them.

There are many creatures in Fairyland, and some of them self identify as humans. Others, like myself and my Caretaker, are fae folk. Fairyland is also home to dryads, elves, gnomes, unicorns and trolls, as well as a myriad of others that call themselves in ways that you may not recognize.

Fairyland is also home to trees, squirrels, foxes, flowers, birds, rocks, sheep, cats, hens, and many other creatures that some consider not sentient or lacking consciousness. In reality, they are all as sentient as one can be, so do not be surprised if trees, cats or bees talk to you, for example. Because of the strong magic in Fairyland, your ability to listen and understand is greatly increased.

The way we live in Fairyland is lovingly, joyfully and with great affection towards one another. This is why magic thrives and creatures feel safe enough to question, recreate and evolve their very identity. You may come here thinking you are a human, but upon getting a good rest in Fairyland, you may discover that you are, in fact, a fae, or perhaps an elf, or maybe even a bumble bee. Who knows? This discovery is yours to make.

Creativity, playfulness and relaxation are deeply cherished in Fairyland, and prioritized above all else. Everyone’s needs, wishes and desires are embraced, which creates a well balanced, self sustainable ecosystem that thrives on joy.

I hope this simple introduction is helpful to you!
