I always loved them, since my childhood, and I always ignored, as I do now, the "mature" people's advice, that they do not exist.
Any legend must have a seed of truth, that is an old Romanian saying which I belive is very true! It only depends on how much are you willing to belive, if you have a young heart and if you agree to the fact that we, with our weak human eyes, cannot see all that's surrounding us.
Didn't you ever wonder why animals can feel danger and changes in weather much better than humans can? mabe it is because they are so naive, so open to everything that is around them. I am conviced that it is because of the direct connection to the nature that animals have, connection which we have lost a long time ago, as soon as we've started eating other animals, and our brains began to bulk up, but at the same time our own connection to Mother Nature faded away.
Did you know that elves never harmed a living creature, never cut a branch from a tree, never stepped on an ant? that they sang in order to make trees give fruit and flowers bloom? That they were close friends to all other animals around them? Doesn't this sound familiar? Like I find this awqwardly similar to the life of Indians in America. Old Indians running free over the vast lands of America, and not the ones still left today, which are sadly fenced in reservations. Don't get me wrong, I am glad for them, these fences keep them protected from this strange world outside, it is better for them, although I would have them rather have all of America, which is an utopia, I know... so this is kind of my seed of truth...
I also believe in unicorns, I always loved horses, and if they come in a pack with faeries, the better!
Now won't you say that I have the fantasy of a 5 year old? that I am a little bit retarded?? You may say anything, I am still gonna say what I mean! I believe strongly in faeries, elves, unicorns, I believe that old forests have their own old heart, I believe the Earth is still trying to tell us something, If only we would stop for a minute and listen!
