About The Story:
"Enlightened-One Fairy's Tale" is a sweet story of one fairy's search for true happiness. She is under the very common assumption that if she gets the thing that she wants the very most she will be happy. She soon discovers that true happiness comes in a very different way. This children's book tells the story of many of us. Today's modern culture teaches us to think only of ourselves and the things that we have and hope to have. But, if happiness truly doesn't come from this, where does it come from? Many people are in search of the secret. In the words of Helen Keller, we learn: "Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within. It is not what we see and touch or that which others do for us which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do, first for the other fellow and then for ourselves." Hence the story of one little fairy named "Gracie".
Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day. ~Quoted in P.S. I Love You
About the Illustrations:
The beautiful illustrations in "Enlightened - One Fairy's Tale" are born of my love for fantastic photography and the new and endless possibilities of photo-shopping. The photographs have been processed to have an oil-painting like effect that keeps one foot in reality while putting the other in fantasy. My hope is that children who look at this beautiful book will wonder if it is real or not. I want their imaginations to lead them to believe that "if this is real, that could be me", so the story and the message behind it can become more understandable and can have a bigger impact. I have had the privilege to work with two very talented photographers, whom I also call "Mom and Dad". Together, they have the combined experience of decades and a deep love for photography. We have been able to combine our talents to create this "Labour of Love". Please read more about them in the "About the Photographers" section.
