To Be Fey And Shui

In response to The Weekly Photo Challenge | Mirror

It’s a trend in gardening to create ‘fairy houses’, ‘fairy places’, and in general creating a sort of Tolkienesque shire-like space. Whilst playing with Feng Shui principals regarding directing energy within a space, and so I have begun to add mirrors to my garden. Beginning with these that Crossroad.Man gave me.

A garden can create places to inspire reflection on the divine. It appeals to the ‘fey’ parts of me, the part that sees fairies as far more than merely a mythology, but aspects of the divine. Least, that’s what I believe to be so. This being my sacred space, all things ‘fey’ has a place.

“I was very much provoked. Of course, I knew there are no fairies; but that needn’t prevent my thinking there is.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

“Fairies, black, grey, green, and white,
You moonshine revellers, and shades of night,
You orphan heirs of fixed destiny,
Attend your office and your quality.”
― William Shakespeare
