Jenny is a wee fae who's a bit on the tomboy side. She bores easily picking flowers and playing in gardens. Her passion is playing at dusk with the firefly tribe. They love to gather near the edges of human gatherings ( especially when they are eating their dinners out on the lawns). Many times you will see her playing with the fireflies during their evening games. She watches over these friends, making sure they don't get caught up in a mason jar by a wandering human child.

When reading and studying the folklore of the Mermaid, it seems that their concepts vary widely depending on the culture's stories. Some say they were known to sing to sea travellers and the distraction would cause them to run their ships aground, others say that have carried humans off to their kingdoms under the sea. Whatever the lore may be, we have been enchanted by these beautiful creatures for ages. So, what is it that attracts us to the sea maiden?
The mystery of the Mer intrigues us. She holds the beauty of woman herself in an embodiment that has the ability to step into both worlds. Momentarily she can be found sitting upon the rocks of the sea banks, perhaps singing to the seagulls or flirting with a passing human. Primarily she is journeying through the waters, delighting in a world who's beauty is mostly unknown to us.
The Mermaid exudes an unbridled passion and a link to the mystery. By having a presence in both land and sea, she is symbolic of a literal thinking world and a rider of the water's emotional world; a combination that shows she has mastered the head and the heart.
While her world in the waters is beautiful and serene, she misses human contact and the conversation. Perhaps, she is just as intrigued with us, as we are with her.

Maya is a gifted writer and poet. The beauty of words she puts to paper are rich and delightful, and over the years she has filled volumes of notebooks that line the shelves in her home. But, Maya is stuck...creatively...and discouraged.You see, she was afraid to share her gift.
Weeks and weeks went by, and she wrote nothing.
As each day passed she found herself more and more saddened by it, until.....
The Songbird arrived.
The Songbird sat outside her study window and sang through the day and night, uplifting Maya's spirits and soon she began to write again. At first she wrote about the songbird, but in short order she began writing about everything in life again.She was so passionate with her gift now that she was not only writing, but reciting to others, sharing with others, and even singing it to others.
(Songbirds are symbolic for creative people, for they spark creativity and spontaneity.)
Maya and the Songbird are constant companions to this day.
