As I was walking home one day in 1996, I happened upon a garden
of cauliﬂower that had been left in the ground over winter. I
looked at it, and I knew. Faeries. I went home, fetched my
camera and returned to the garden to photograph them. The
photograph Faerie Circle is one from that first visit. That
evening, when my husband came home, I could not contain my
excitement. I told him that I had something to show him. He very
sweetly obliged me, and I led him to the garden. I asked, “What
do you see?” He smiled knowingly and replied with a question:
Thrilled that he had seen what I had seen, I went back two
more times. On my third visit to the group, I saw Evangeline.
She appeared in an instant, and my eyes filled with tears. I was
awed by her beauty, her grace, and her undeniably powerful
presence. She was so alive. So real.
I fell in love with Evangeline right then - love at first
sight. But it was only later that I came to believe that she had
come to inspire me to pursue my creativity and to share my way
of seeing with others.
