When I was a child, I would play wood-elves outside for hours. We had a ring of box bushes that I would sit inside with my collie, Laddie. He would sit solemnly, guarding me inside the ring, and I would pretend to be a wood-elf with all the rest of my imaginary wee folk with me. I would find opened walnut shells on the ground; they were the elves’ beds. I would sit very quietly, because everyone knows that elves can’t tolerate the noise of humans. This picture, taken in Shenandoah National Park, is the closest I’ll get to being a wood-elf. Due to the strangeness of angle and camera perspective, I look smaller and more diminutive of leg than usual. But this makes me strangely happy. 🙂 Go figure. Slainte, Lisa
Remember the little Wood-Elf houses?
Oh, yeah….I still leave them alone when I see them. “Maybe they’re sleeping.” 😉
What a HAPPY picture of you! If the wood-elves make you that happy, then I’m ALL for the little guys!! God Bless!
