I believe in good fairies!
I used to believe in good wizards and fairies when I was a child. Not in angels, there was no such trend back then and no one said that everyone had one. Not Father Christmas, because I saw people I knew and didn't know dressed up as them. And certainly not Santa Claus, which Soviet children did not know about.
I believed in fairies...
Oh, how many of them, different, young and old, austere and not so austere, beautiful and ordinary lived in the pages of books that I reveled in and read!
And accordingly, as much, even more, lived in my head.
Fairies helped me in school, in life, in games and activities. Or so I thought, they did. Of course, I knew that many miracles were performed by my mother. But it looked to me like a fairy thing, and I was sure of it.
And I was absolutely delighted to know that I had such powerful, magical and kind helpers.
Perhaps it was this consciousness of support that gave the child's body the strength to grow during difficult times in life.
I was growing up. My perception of the world changed accordingly. A different understanding of the pillars of human life emerged. There was a deep feeling and sense of Faith. Other books were being read.
But childhood fantasies and beliefs remain!!!
I am still convinced that fairies exist! Only now I have quite clear, tangible images. They have acquired human traits and characters. They live practically side by side and you can talk, laugh, work and be friends with them. You can admire them and tell them so directly.
They are beautiful, talented, endlessly kind and compassionate people.
ARTISTS who create dolls!
My dear Fairies!
The whole team of our magazine wishes you a very Happy New Year!
Don't think that anything can break you or frighten you! After all, you have something that a normal person cannot have - the ability to create and build! Your magical hands can work miracles, your heads can think outside the box, and your souls can compassionately inspire, understand and truly LOVE.
That's why you create imaginative and emotional works of art, which are called PUPPETS.
Mold, plan, mould, mould, cut, sew, paint and decorate new dolls! The world is waiting for them, like a miracle, like magic!
And may the doll bring comfort to some and joy to others, may it make some people think and others cry. But all these feelings will be sincere and kind! Just like the souls that created them!
The fairy knew her business,
And, flying through the skies,
Day and night, then and there,
It worked wonders.
The Puppet Fairy created,
Making crafts, witchcraft.
Everything she touched,
It was coming alive, waking up.
And in her hands obediently
The Soul Puppets were being acquired.
After all, Dolls of Destiny also have
Similar to human beings...
And then their trophies
Handed out to the people by the Fairy.
Because it is a remedy,
To remember childhood forever...
