Sapphire Fairy by Ryu Takeuchi
If you had unintentionally wandered into Faery, got lost there, subsequently found the way out and wanted to provide some kind of guide for other travellers, where would you start? Such was my dilemma when I was asked to write this article. Would it be wiser to start with the folklore and disentangle the historical reality behind various fairy beliefs, or take a more modern and trendy approach and try to make a connection between Jungian psychology, modern ‘reconstructionist’ mystics, earthlights and ‘ufo abduction’ phenomena? It soon became clear that, whatever starting point I chose, all I could hope to achieve was an American-style, whistle-stop ‘impressions of faery’ tour, given the vast amount of material available on the subject.
