If I learned anything this week it's that there are fairies for everything...winter fairies, water fairies, rain fairies...e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g...but tire swing fairies? Never heard of 'em. Apparently they thrive in parks and in both rural and urban settings alike. This one we found in Prospect Park, in Brooklyn. She was radiant, well, hardy at the very least. All bundled up for winter, she slipped out from her warm nest, or whatever dwellings they are that fairies slip out from, and took in an afternoon of sunshine and tire swinging. Not at all dangerous, and much too whimsical to inspire any sort of fear or loathing, tire swing fairies are often remembered for simply being fun. This one was most definitely that.
Keep an eye out. I guarantee that you'll see one if you're paying attention. Luckily we brought this one home with us.
