I am but the star dust that tumbles
I am but the twig that snaps beneath your umbels
I am but the gentle breeze that rustles inside the leafless trees
And yet, I am all this if only you believe.
I have such exciting news to share with you all! I have started the painting portion of the already written… Curious Stories of Thimble Tarn… it will be written and illustrated by me, Anastasia Traina ~2015 http://wp.me/p22olG-q8
Dearest MayMay spinning Spring,
See how she loves all the living things.
She spins the sky such a marvelous French blue,
Yes, I have heard it said, and I believe it’s true.
With each spin that is spun, a fairy’s wish she hath done!

Caprimulgus europaeus ~ Is a small bird with huge eyes, it is mostly nocturnal and so is rarely seen. Legend has it that the soul of an unbaptized child will take the form of a Nightjar, condemned to wander about the world eternally…
