Men have always been obsessed by the possibility of literally see the invisible and its many inhabitants into this plane, with their own profane eyes. As a matter of proof, like a salad of mythology dressed with pseudo science, spiced up by superstitions, garnished by hope and folk religion. A dish mostly eaten by ignorants, wrong doers or delusional people.
I have always been fascinated by those facts, not as a cheap escape from reality but instead as a garland of flowers upon an Ass.
The gift of gazing into the invisible gives a tremendous insight, to know and understand a world where Nature has a meaning and not just a profit. Thus Fairies mean connections and beauty, a power of our soul and way of life.
