Nearly every day, weather permitting, I wander along many trails in Acadia National Park. Often I stop, inspired by what I see, close-up, or far away.

One day while walking on my favorite path through the woods I came upon a faery house. Enchanted, I photographed it. Throughout the summer more faery houses appeared.

When I was very small, an elderly friend of the family took me on a walk near her mountain cabin, down a hill to the faery woods. What magic I found there. I've since been aware of faeries in many places in the world.

A friend told me I should DO something with all my photographs. So I came up with this idea to put out a line of cards: "Faery Woods Images."

To the waters and the wild,
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping

beneath the roof of sleeping leaves
the dreams of trees unfold." --J.R.R. Tolkien
