The Woodland Faerie

According to the definition of fairies, a fairy is "a tiny imaginary being in human form, depicted as clever, mischievous, and possessing magical powers".  Obviously, an error occurred during the transcription of ancient texts by non-magical humans, who interpreted imaginative as "imaginary".

Scholars refer to Sprites Talenticus, commonly known as the woodland fairy, as "good folk" and "people of peace". The woodland fairy of the fairy kingdom, are rarely seen by the human eye as they are known to be "shy and timid".  While it may be true that most fairies avoid human contact, this is certainly not true about one particular fairy belonging to the species Sprites Talenticus, whom I have recently met.

This fairy's magical powers include chanting, which can lead someone to start a blog, or cause mischief on other blogs. If you lost touch with your inner child, this fairy can help you find him/her again.

She also possesses the magical power of creativity; she paints, writes poetry, makes things and crochetnsing, crochecutl, crochesolves, anyhow, she uses string, yarn, wool? and needles, or magic, to create book worms, bags and items that we have yet to see.  As you'll discover when you visit her, she is a very talented fairy.

She is also quite powerful, she deals with anything the elements throw at her with a resilience and strength that in the short time that I have known her, I have come to greatly admire.  Like most fairies, Sprites Talenticus is very territorial and fiercely protective of her incredible and amazing family.  Anyone who dares to annoy her should be afraid...wwerry afraid.

It was recently brought to my attention that this fairy, who calls herself  A Little Sprite is celebrating a birthday.  It is only appropriate that I should give her an offering.

Since she is also a very funny fairy, unpredictable as all fairies are, one never knows whether one of her comments will elicit a chuckle, a laugh or lead to a sudden urge to be silly.  Among the hilarious moments of her life that she shares with those who have met her, are encounters with bats who throw mangoes at her and "horizontal rock-climbing" (patent pending).

So without further ado, a little Sprite is presented with this award by the Count himself, who knows about "batty" things and is asked to answer the following question:

"Do your witty answers pop instantly into your head when you read the post with an immediate urge to hit the comment button or do you have to sit and ponder?"

Have a great Birthday, Little Sprite, wishing you happiness and that your wishes come true.

Recent reports indicate an unusually high level of fairy sightings. Reports of fairy activity have come in from these locations: Here and Here and Here and Here...
