Subject: RE: Tune Req: Fairy Annie's Wedding
'FaIRY' IS, ALAS, ONE OF THOSE WORDS OF NONE-TOO-PRECISE MEANING, USED IN DIFFERING SENSES BY DIFFERENT WRITERS AND AUTHORITIES AT DIFFERENT TIMES. KILMENY WAS INDEED STOLEN BY THE FAIRIES; BUT I sorry; caps lock stuck agree that they wouldn't have looked anything like one of the tinsel+magic·wand artefacts stuck on top of Xmas trees. A pixie is just a sort of fairy. If you visualise Tinkerbell thus to yourself, feel free; but my pixies have green pointy hats, but she hadn't, she was merely a point of light and a ping. I agree re her mischievousness. Things which go missing in my house go down the Black Hole of their own contrary volition!...
Of course I have read Peter Pan. And seen it more times than I can count.
But now I am getting nearer & nearer to it, I can no longer be so convinced that to die is going to be such an awfully big adventure at that. Feeling more & more like a Lost Boy...
