‘Fairy Adventures – The Ouevre’
A decade of domiciling in the ‘Kingdom of Sydney’ came to an end in September 2017. I just want to record the ‘delicious and fairylicious’ time I had with all my Sydney Fairy Friends; from KU Rushcutters Bay to Darlinghurst Public [for their annual Fairytale Wonderland Days] to Ascham School [for family picnic days] to Kambala Girls’ School [for presentations of examples of the narrative] to St Margaret Mary’s Primary [for Book Week visits] to Council School Holiday library visits [Waverley, Canterbury, City of Sydney etc], to Hyde Park Australia Day and to a summer camp for special needs young adults in the Blue Mountains and, of course the fairy parties I had the opportunity to weave birthday joy! Thank you, Sydney!
There were also fairy ‘roadtrips’ visiting Muswellbrook Library, Laurieton Library [near Port Macquarie], The Byron Bay Library, Cairns Library and five Brisbane libraries as well as ‘Where The Wild Things Are’; the children’s bookshop in Brisbane.
I believe there is no end to ‘story magic/learning to love literature sessions’, despite domiciling in a new fairy home – the Gold Coast and I am relishing this next chapter as a ‘Goldie’.
Imparting my love of children’s literature is my fairytale and … “Fairytales are a beguiling paradox. Familiar and mysterious, earthy and ethereal, lucid and absurd. They seek to illuminate greater truths via the dark woods of our consciousness. But more than anything else, they fire our imagination, having crept into our collective psychoses as bedtime scriptures from an imaginary time and place”.
I look forward to adding my pages to ‘The Fairy Poppilina Fairytale’ and thank you for providing my ‘happy ever after’, dear Fairyones.
