A glimmering handful of Lewes Beach is making its journey across the country to the Enchanted World of Fairy Woodland in Oregon. During the Fall Equinox on September 22, it will be gathered together with sand from other faraway places in an energy blessing ritual. Then five fairy houses, one to comfort each of the Gulf states, will be constructed by October 22, the next full moon.
For those unfamiliar with fairy houses, here's a description from the artists - "We build small houses made of natural materials like twigs and stone and sand for the homes and gardens of mortals who want to invite these mystical creatures to come and live with them. These miniature houses are not just craft projects – they are alchemical art, designed to engage the mythic imagination and open a gateway for communication with the life energies that inhabit forests and streams, caves, trees, flowers – all of the natural world."
Sounds wonderful, right? If you'd like the healing power of your own local waterway included in this magnificent event, it's not too late - the deadline for arrival is September 21, 2010. Visit The Fairy Sand Project page for more details.
