By now, the term Covid-19 is known to everyone in the world. Many countries have taken the steps that they deem right for their situation, but everywhere, people suffer of this virus. This is not limited to those who have contracted it and have fallen ill, but also to their friends and loved ones and, of course, to the valiant medical professionals who are working so hard to help all of us.
As of tomorrow, most of the US (and therefore SLT) will go on daylight saving time. This means that SLT, as of tomorrow, 2am SLT, will be one hour later. Please keep this in mind when attending events.
We here at The Faery Crossing are happy and thankful that you have been on our journey with us. Whether you have been here for years or just joined this week, we are honored and overjoyed to have you as part of our Fae family.
There is no such thing as a perfect year and every year will bring hardships, disappointments, pain and anguish, just like every year will bring joy, happiness, smiles and love. Often, sadly, the hurt lingers far longer than the joy and we send our hearts out to all of you.
Where pain, however, is often found in great setbacks and impactful events, joy and love are most often seen in the smallest moments: a drawing from a son, daughter or niece or nephew; a much needed hug from your spouse or your parent; that beautiful morning that promises magic… these are the moments that count.
Wherever you are, whoever you are: from the bottom of our hearts, we wish you the most blessed of Yuletides and a wonderful , joyous and magical new year.
Or at least your keyboards. The Magic Messenger is created by and for the Fae of the Faery Crossing, so we would like your input for the next issue. The guiding themes will be Yule and Winter Spirits (alcoholic, ephemeral or otherwise).
We rely on your imagination to keep making this wonderful periodical, so please share your stories, jokes, poems, recipes, and whatever else you can think of with us.
The summer edition of the Magic Messenger has been released. Read stories and poems, catch up on the adventures of Sylia and Temna and peruse the latest news of the Faery Crossing – and there is plenty!
Walking through Madrigal, there is no place where your skin is not warmed by the gentle glow of the sun. If Summer were ever to settle down, it would be in this land of green grass and white beaches. Entering from the north, I come through a peaceful hamlet where Fae are busy watering their plants or lounging around the central pond. They greet me and wave merrily as I pass. Looking to the east, I see a temple on a hill, content under the shadow of the majestic white castle over in The Faery Crossing.
