I believe in Huldufolk by Shinjuchan I believe in Huldufolk by Shinjuchan
:butterflytwo: I SUPPORT FAERIES! :butterflytwo:

'Huldufólk' --- the ‘Hidden ones’ Sprites, Wiskies, Elves, Gnomes, Trolls, Brownies, Dwarves, and other such fae people.

For my dearest .. the self-professed elfhunter of Landmannalaugar. :þ Thank you so very much for all the help. And to Mart’s Getkheb to whom the elf in this stamp was modeled. (I’m going to go post him alone too)

-------

Humans were always an uneasy sort. On this vast, wild planet, they set out to create a reassuring orderliness — to define themselves and the creatures around them, to bridle nature, structure countries and kingdoms, to establish hierarchies among themselves so that each would know his place.

Faerie nature, in contrast, was (and remains) essentially fluid, ambiguous, and most often marked by caprice. Conniving and innocent both, they reveal themselves like a moment’s glare upon jewel stones; faster and fleeting and cloaked in privileged glimpses. With Earth Day coming fast I'm reminded that we need to re-think ourselves: To treasure, protect, and safeguard our nature.

-------

“.. Iceland is geologically very young, constantly being reshaped by the forces of volcanic fire and ice, sparsely populated, and spectacularly and strangely beautiful. It is almost completely unspoilt and unpolluted. Therefore I am not surprised at the high percentage of Icelanders – one of the most highly educated and technically sophisticated people in the world – who believe in the existence of the nature spirits who have long thrived in such an environment. An overwelming percentage of the population either believe in, or do not deny, their existence. The forms these inhabitants of the narure world are many. Some are malevolent, cruel, and vile. Some are lovely, full of childish innocence, and playful.” - Octavia Randolph

I don't know whether or not to say 'thanks' to that so I'll just acknowledge you said something at least.
