Forest Fae . . .
somewhere in a remote New Zealand forest
i collected these rocks from a nearby creek. hardest ones i could find. also a pretty green color. something i’ll remember about this spot was a couple of fairly curious small birds. they were highly interested in my activities.. sometimes i felt my space being violated.. ha
interesting bit of trivia i learned on an Air New Zealand flight into Queenstown:
over 54,000 Kiwis identify their religion as . .. Jedi
so it appears i’m in the right place! :))
I cannot get over it, you have been over here in Aotearoa? I always thought that Boulder Bank in Nelson would be a perfect spot for you as well, I was joking we would need to invite you….. don’t tell me that even the little stacks on an old tree at Cable Bay were your work…. it instantly reminded me on you. I believed that I had liked your fb page already to find out yesterday that I had not…. therefore I made sure that my friends will know you as well from now on. I would have loved to see you doing this here. Will you come again some day???????
How come the faerie looks like Brandon Love?!
Welcome to our wonderful country!
Another delicate balancing act
It does appear you are in the right spot! Love NZ–enjoy!

New Zealand is the most magical country. The topography, geography & geology will have you spellbound… My neice has just come back from a few months in a campervan traveling through glaciers etc etc. The photos were sublime. I look forward to seeing your forays into the wilderness. As an Australian we see N.Z as our cousins. There are so many kiwis here! Bless them.
You’re back! Cool! :)
The force is strong in you.
I’ve put that on a Census before!
May gravity be with you :-)
There you are…I’ve missed you.
Really . So cool (y)

The force is strong with you!
..as one of those Jedi, welcome to Aotearoa! :)
Love New Zealand. That was the first place I ever saw stacked rocks.
visit me in Australia, lots of good rocks here mate
Amazing me as usual.
Are you coming up to Auckland at all?
Not sure but it’s possible.. Currently exploring fiordland. which I’ve decided will be my home for at least 1-2 weeks!
Enjoy the primordial beauty :)
Hope you come over the ditch to the land of Oz. There’s magic here too.
Faeries is an acceptable spelling. It’s just old.
I am a counselor for emotionally disturbed and autistic kids, and I have started to get them to stack and balance rocks on a nature trail near our school. They are really getting a kick out of it, especially the autistic kids. It gives them an artistic outlet, where their overly intense focus is actually beneficial for them.
Wow what wonderful Idea.!!!!!!!
Very groovy cool …
Great idea ! My daughter is a Music Therapist and works with autistic children. I will have to tell her your story.
What a brilliant idea! Helping them like this is marvelous…
WTH is that scary thing off to the right side of the picture?!?!?
