Where did the idea come from? I think this question is at the root of my search as I set out looking for fairies. Why are they so much a part of Irish mythology? Is it possible that there are beings that exist outside of our normal range of perception? Not necessarily fairies in their traditional form...I mean, hey, I wouldn't mind seeing one fluttering around (under the influence of something, maybe. Or not).
It turns out that looking for fairies is not easy. And Dublin is certainly no magical place. In my search, however, I often end up meeting very interesting people. They don't always go looking for fairies with me but somehow they bring me closer to the truth. My truth.
