Are they real?.....or not?
Illusion: An illusion is a false mental image produced by misinterpretation of things that actually exist.
Delusion: A delusion is a belief that, although false, is accepted by the mind as a truth.
Mystical: That is mysterious in the true sense which is beyond human comprehension
Bright sparkling white spots, single or in groups, streaks of white that zip into view, hang there for a while, then disappear.
Inside, outside, my girlfriend insists she sees Faires!
The problem is she's got me seeing them. I think.
A few nights ago I crawled into bed, snuggled under the quilt. It's Winter. The windows are closed, a dark silent night with no wind rattling the trees. In the house, except for the crackle of the wood stove and rustle of the cats settling down, it's dark and quiet as only a cold winter night can be.
I closed my eyes and there they were: Faires? Flitting, flashing and doing their dance. Out of the corner of my eye there I see a flash of white, look up and see tiny, dancing spots of sparkling brightness on the ceiling in the corner flitting around. Then, poof, they're gone.
I opened my eyes -- still there -- closed them -- still there.
That did it. I sat up, opened my eyes -- gone -- shut my eyes gone.
But . . . will they be back?
My friend insists that if I believe I can see and catch moonbeams, which we called Angel Wings when we were kids, that she can see Faires and, if she sees them, then I can too.
After 30 some odd years of being friends, sitting out by the campfire long after everyone else has gone to bed, spending many a night out in the barn sitting in the hay together, waiting for one of our horses to foal, or riding miles the miles of trails in the ancient woods and dunes at all times of the day and night, I have to say we've seen and experienced some strange, wonderful, unbelievable and unexplainable things. I'll save those for another story.
But Faires? Well, why not!
Another night like that, and I think I may be a believer!
|These are the two most active rooms!|
This first -- yes I said first -- happening was about 8 years ago. I was a new widow of a few months and alone in the house except for my critters.
Other strange and unusual things happened all the time in and around the property ever since I moved there in 1976. The Faireshave appeared many more times. I've learned to watch the cat and dog. When they just look up and stare at the ceiling, you just might get a glimpse.
Do you believe in the mystical and unknown?
