Letter from the Editor
Fairies love this time of year, when
according to many legends, the veil between
the worlds of the seen and the unseen thins
for about 3 days. If you can spend any
time that weekend (October 30-November 2)
outside in natural surroundings, you may have
some very magical experiences. . .

constantly celebrate life in a light-hearted
and whimsical way and want to see us just as
This is also the ideal season to feature our
mysterious Fairy of Shadows, Ravanna (aka The
Goth Fairy) who is unveiling some special
products this month (see below.) As mediator
between the light and dark aspects of our
subconscious minds. Ravanna dares you to walk
a bit on the wild side, to take a step into
the unknown and take risks.
Have you taken our Inner Fairy quiz yet? You
may be surprised to find that this
mischevious muse is your special fairy!

Fortunes. (Fairy Kim is wearing a new

This versatile and size-adjustable tutu is

web wand with silver strands. Topped off by
a black and silver flower and ribbon halo.

shades! When you visit the Fairy Couture
page do click to enlarge the individual
photos so you can appreciate the incredible

||Fair-apy EXPLORING A HIDDEN DESIRE
Ravanna is also the Diva of Desire (note her
sassy red pumps peeking out!) She invites you
to take a tiny step this month towards
fulfilling a hidden desire, kind of like
dipping your toes in the mysterious mote
surrounding Ravanna's House of Shadows.
Spend 15-20 minutes doing this exercise:
Think about something you have secretly
longed to explore in yourself; to write a
book; go back to school, do stand-up comedy;
learn to dance salsa - think about what
you would have to do realistically to
accomplish this, what sacrifices you would
have to make, and how it would challenge you.
