- While out walking today in the woods and meadows near my home, I came upon a pond that contained an abundance of water lilies in full bloom. I spied at first what I took to be an incredibly colorful butterfly sitting on a pad. Without taking my eyes off of it I crept closer and closer to get a better look. And to my shock realized that this was no ordinary butterfly, in fact it was not a butterfly at all! For there in broad daylight was a baby fairy on all fours. It was only then that I noticed that the woods had grown deadly quiet, with not even a breath of air stirring and rustling the leaves of trees. I felt as if I had eyes boring into my back, and the energy in the air was extremely tense. I immediately looked around to see who or what was there and saw nothing. When I turned back the little fairy was gone and the normal sounds of the forest had resumed. Although I was disappointed not to be able to observe this bit of magic any longer I also felt blessed to even have had that brief glimpse.
