Deep in my hermitage in our faerie land forest... I sometimes remember blog land like it was some magical kingdom that I would visit on my flying carpet, a place full of dream weavers, threads of mind connecting through the twilight skies, lovers draped in ...

NOW and THE WALL
There have been so many parts of my personal journey and our adventures as a family from the last year that just haven't made it into words, once conjoined with my camera I find the dust settles on it as days go by.  Discovering instagram didn't help this, ...

Story

Creater of faerymother, amongst other things
Introduction

"She stopped pretending and finally allowed herself to walk around in the world as she honestly was. Feelings of relief and peacefulness overwhelmed her. She had set herself free". 

Traveler married to a Tibetan nomad; together we wonder the world with our children, trading, making music, connecting to communities, discovering that life has endless possibilities…

My full heart spills over here with the inspiration from our discoveries, the blessings of motherhood and attempt at Buddha-hood, all the wisdoms gleaned from a life that never stands still.

I’m a tinker of many things a master of none. My children are unschooled. Our neglected art gallery sits dusty in the Indian Himalayans... while my etsy shop fills with Tribal silvers, 1960 European apparel and other curious things.

This is my strange offering, enjoy and be one...

Please respect my words and pictures, ask before you borrow, copy and paste...
