Catch a fairy, make a wish
Dreams take soaring flight
When I was a child I was told that each floating thistledown was actually a fairy in disguise. I’m not sure exactly who told me this – I have several relatives who told magical stories so it could have been one of several people! I had to carefully catch one, taking care not to cause it any harm, and whisper a wish to it before blowing it back to the wind.
Even now when I see the silky fronds of thistledown drifting past, my tendency is to reach out a hand.
You’re never too old to cast your dreams to the wind.
