children at girl scout camps have a fondness for building fairy houses. one time we had very many notes to the fairies and we needed to close camp and get business done, so i wrote a letter. i signed it with the glitch name of a real person, so i can't take credit for that, nor can i take credit for using the glitch calendar system to date the letter. i just thought it would lend a lovely not-quite-of-this-world quality to it and quite frankly, i do not think i could have invented a better name for the purpose.
so here's the letter:
Hairday, 29th of Fever
Wye Pond Hill
Your eyes cannot read our Fae language, but I and some of the others have some learning in your letters.
Wee are very fond of Girl Scouts ever since they named Brownie Scouts for our cousins, the Brownies.
Wee have enjoyed so very much your gifts, and when wee are small wee love living in the houses you build. It has been so much fun trading notes and surprises with you that wee will be a little sad to get back on out tour bus after our convention is over.
Wee have stayed perhaps too long in the houses of our sisters and brothers on Wye Pond Hill but they will enjoy quiet again soon.
Remember that wherever there is a spirit of kindness, a playful spirit or merrie magic, wee are near. Take care of yourselves and take care of each other. Be kind to the land and the water and the air and care for all the creatures that walk, crawl, slither, swim, or fly.
Thank you for your kindness, and look for us again in green forests where there is laughter and delight.
With Love and Respect,
International Guild of Traveling Fairies
