The patio outside my house has been filled with white and purple violets for the past two weeks. They make me SO happy. As usual I consulted Ted Andrew's book, Nature-Speak, to gather his wisdom as it brightens my life whenever I read it.
"Many legends speak of the violet being sacred to the Fairy Queen, and gathering the first wild violet in the spring brings energy of luck and assistance of the Faerie Realm into your life for the fulfillment of your dearest wish in the year ahead. The violet is the flower of simplicity and modesty, two of the best qualities to develop in attuning to faeries and elves. This flower reminds us to keep things simple for opportunities are about."
Thank you Ted!!!
In my household we have many splendid dreams and it feels good to move modestly and simply towards them. I hope you too can tune into the magic of the Violet Flower. So present they are in our lives for the next few weeks.

This past week I had the pleasure of doing Fairy and Demon Workshops for Green Mountain Self Advocates' Voices and Choices Conference. Here, 700 people celebrated and shared efforts and information as we continue down the strong path of the Civil Rights Movement for People with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism.
