Nature hikes and faeries! <3
Beneath the silver foam of the ocean, below the waves and beyond the pull of the tides, there lived, in a cave, a’ mhaighdeann-mhara, a mermaid. It was not a cave of darkness, but a passage into light and and all colors of the sea. The mermaid, a creature of powerful beauty and grace, swam among the emerald sea grasses and lavender coral. She played with the crystal bubbles that rose from her mouth, and she allowed the rainbow-colored fish to hide in the tresses of her long, golden hair. And sometimes, when she could feel a sadness or gladness in her, she would glide up onto a rock and sing of all these wonders with a voice that floated out of the cave and up into the world above, where the humans heard it and wept with joy.

Of course you don’t believe in fairies. You’re fifteen. You think I believed in fairies at fifteen? Took me until I was at least a hundred and forty. Hundred and fifty, maybe. Anyway, he wasn’t a fairy. He was a librarian. All right?

I just bought this last week! So excited :)
Found this book I had been wanting for awhile! #faerycraft #faery #wicca
I want to live with the faeries…or in the ocean…or anywhere but here pretty much. There has to be more to this life.
