While working on my novel, I came across these to stories that belong to pottery sculptures sold quite some time ago. I laughed because these came out long before I ever considered being a professional coach. How appropriate they are now, though, to share with those who are exploring, dreaming and discovering their own personal journeys!
Faerie watched and waited as other Faeries came
and went from Mud Heaven.
Faerie quite likes her body of light,
but her heart was set on getting out in the people world.
Ah, but no nature spirit, no potter, not even troll
would play a part in getting her out there.
For awhile Faerie even pouted, felt ignored, and
sometimes got a wee bit angry.
And then Faerie started to think…
and watch the other Faeries more closely….
… and chatted a bit with Potter.
Her little body suddenly shone brightly
one day as she realized it was up to her!
No one else could say who
she should be!
No one else knew her better than herself!
It was her choice how she wants to appear in the people world!
Only she could create herself!
Presenting wise and enchanting Faerie as she creates herself!
Good for you, Faerie!
Troll was curled up in Potter’s arm watching the creation of this pot.
“Potter,” Troll growled, “why didn’t Faerie build his
ladder to the top?!”
Meanwhile Faerie carved a door into the pot,
delighted at the opportunity to have a door!
“Potter, her ladder is completely upside down
and #@$ backwards, how silly!”
“Troll don’t swear, you’re in a story you know.”
“Grumble grumble,” Troll grumbled.
Meanwhile Other Faerie swung herself
upside down and @#$ backwards, calling out to Faerie,
“Hey look at me, look at the fun I can have
when my ladder is upside down and backwards! whoo hoo!’
“Oh stupid little thing, she’s going to fall you know, just watch,”
remarked Troll knowingly, “.. and HE is really gonna fall!”
Potter and Troll watched as Faerie flew a log in to
connect between the ladders.
Together they carved another door, and the
connection of the ladders was complete.
The Faeries scampered across logs and up and down ladders.
They performed graceful triple flip dives off the highest ladder.
And when they wanted to rest,
they had dozens of little places to snuggle up.
“Potter, they’ve created a dangerous stupid place.” said Troll.
Meanwhile, we heard Faeries cry out joyously,
“We’ve created Heaven!”
May you have Faerie Perceptions!
