Letting the Realness of Life In

Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,

It’s been a busy summer so I’m just now having a moment to write about the “Fairy of the Blog” which I drew from my Fairy Deck on August 18th.  I’m delighted to introduce to you... 

He’s perfect because on August 17th I returned to full-time work.   Some of us, I realize, are just busy people with full lives by nature.  For nearly two years I’ve been a busily under employed person and now I’m a busily fully employed person with a LOT of life going on all around me. Can this work?  Yes!

The “Fairy of Letting the Realness of Life in and Breathing Your True Magic Out” serves as a reminder of how living a full life works best.  Allowing all the obligations and responsibilities and dreams and setbacks and wonders that fill your life to exist without avoiding them or being overwhelmed by them can feel at times like a large challenge.  Some people call it “living an authentic life.”

Brene Brown in her book, The Gifts of Imperfection, defines “Authenticity” as “a collection of choices that we have to make every day.  It's about the choice to show up and be real.  The choice to be honest.  The choice to let our true selves be seen."

 In with the breaths of true air and enjoy the magic that unfolds. 

We’d like to welcome all the new members to this email list.  I've met most of you recently at the Bluebird Fairy Booth at the Arts Riot Truck Stop or the Bluebird Fairies exhibit at The Bread and Puppet Museum in Glover, Vermont. 

Every Friday I have fun at the Truck Stop meeting people from many walks of life. My four Fairy Card Reading sessions in Glover were equally wonderful.  It's hugely rewarding to have conversations about what is positive and moving forward in people's lives.  In Glover, I talked with beautifully weary puppeteers, old friends and people who’d travelled from far and near to see the work of this world renowned theater.

Director, Peter Schumann, gave me a great review for our first exhibit. "Emily, you have been a Woodshed Gallery Success. People love the Bluebird Fairies!"  Thank you, Peter.  And now there are Decks of Fairy Cards settling into homes in places as far as San Francisco and Paris.  I’m really excited that a t-shirt of “The Fairy of Not Doing and All gets Done” has travelled overseas to Oxford University.

Thank you for taking a moment to read this posting.  Another, short and sweet one will arrive soon and then updates about Bluebird Fairies’ activities in connection with The South End Art Hop in Burlington, Vermont.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to send me a message.

And definitely friend us on Facebook!  There you can see lots of pictures of happy people at the Bluebird Fairy Booth.

Be well.
