" Do you believe in Faeries?"
The great diving phrase. By giving an answer, you reveal to the world your sanity or madness. Is belief in faeries rational or irrational? Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy books are about the metaphysics of faerie belief, leading you to a place where the rational mind meets the irrational heart, and belief becomes possible. Does it matter if you believe in faeries? Well, I can only answer that the world feels like a much better place when you do. It becomes a place of imbued with a glorious sense of enchantment and connection. I think J.M Barrie would agree. His audiences at his play Peter Pan certainly Did, when enthusiastically clapping their belief to save the life of Tinker Bell. Barrie says to not to believe is death to the faeries. This implies that we and Faerie are inextricably linked and we have a responsibility to each other.”
