LitFest Tour Sunday April 26th 2020: Lunafae

The Company of Faire Folk rides out! Or walks, flies or (consults notes) swims – as is your preference. And our third Tour of 2020 takes us to the beautiful moonlit gardens of fae haunted Lunafae!

An enchanted Moon garden which comes alive with the sinking of the sun. As fae come out to dance and play under silvery beams, a magic settles over those that visit marking them always as children of the Moon.

Things to See:

Listen carefully for the voices of the fae folk; do they bring treats or terror? Dare you linger into the dusk and challenge the moonrise? The fae are everywhere now that the daylight is vanishing.

Between the water & the Western steps, two are being taught a new dance routine whilst a rabbit contemplates a picnic.

At Southern steps, a fairy is playing pea pod flute and  lower down one bunny is consulting a fae fortune teller and obtaining a potion.

Hidden Secrets:

Look for the drunken fairies; one crash landed into a bush, and others are nearby. Another is a harpist, playing for a dancer.

Unicorn foals are also attracted to Lunafae gardens and a mouse is sharing the cakes. Beware, the grass can be slippery!

Take a minute to look at the store designs; there are different textures on the outsides. Listen carefully to the spooky sounds of Fae chatter.

Can you find the memorial? “And like the moon, we must pass through phases of emptiness to feel the pull again. Keep walking in peace. Peace is always beautiful.”

Things to Ponder:

Where are the big people who fit the chairs and set the picnics? Did they have to abandon their fare as the moon ascended?

Who created the gardens and why? Where they created for all to enjoy or are they taken over each eve to settle a debt?

There are statues at the head of each waterfall. Who might they commemorate? The child about to step down, the woman with her harvest, the young couple, the man and child.
