Dear Friends of Bluebird Fairies,
Today, I decided to, again, pick a fairy to write about here using my prototype for the 'Fairy of the Day' app. Here's what I received:
Ah, the 'Fairy of my Outer Loveliness.' (Up until now I didn't know Loveliness has an "e" in it.)
On this early morning, in my cluttered office and having a big project ahead of me, I didn't quite know how to respond to this fairy.
To get this fairy to you I needed to save it to the photos on my phone. When I retrieved it I saw next to it a picture taken of me from the night before. Already in my 'busy day head' I'd forgot my red dress event.
I'd been at the Black Horse Art Gallery where Bread and Puppet Theater's Peter Schumann has a show called "Post-Apocalypse for 3/4 Empire."
I was there to perform with a small group of performers a show with the banners. And now, here I am after the show sharing a moment of 'outer loveliness' with my long-time puppeteer friend, Alexis Smith
So, I think what I want to do with this post is remind us about the magic we have in our lives. We forget it's there and then we look again and find it.
Do that today. Give life a big hello and find the great in it.
Wishing you all the best!
Emily and the Bluebird Fairies
