I’ve never seen a gnome or anything like that, but I did have an experience as a kid that is reminiscent of how the fae world is described.
I grew up spending my days exploring the woods around my house. I’d leave early in the morning, take my BB gun, my knife and some lunch and I’d
stay gone until around dinner time. I did this almost every day during the summer. One day I stumbled upon this meadow that I had never see in those
woods. It was beautiful. It was green, there were dear walking around unafraid of me, butterflies flying around, and everything was really, really
bright. It was almost like everything was illuminated by some kind of inner light. The grass, the trees, the animals, everything.
Even the sunlight had a physical quality to it. It’s hard to describe and put into words exactly. I hung out for a while sitting on the grass just
watching everything and then I left and continued on my ramblings. The next day I tried to find that spot again, and it was nowhere to be found. I
looked for it the next day. And the next. And I couldn’t find it anywhere. I spent almost every day after that of my childhood in those woods
looking for that place.
And it wasn’t there. What’s weird is that I can still picture it perfectly in my mind. I remember everything. How it looked, how it smelled, the
feeling of the place. Everything.
But it doesn’t exist. At least not in any way I could find it again.
