NEST OF ”FAIRIES”

.

.

The ‘room’ about which I spoke as housing The Gypsy’s altar at Spirit Mesa was actually a tee pee.

It was 22 feet across, if I recall correctly.  (the little patio in THE BAD picture (https://otherearsothertongues.wordpress.com/category/spirit-mesa-photos/ ) was built where the tee pee had stood, and the white surrounding circle fit well within the space formerly covered by the rug in the tee pee.  The altar was a flat stone set up just inside the east-facing entrance.  There was a ‘berm’ in front of the tee pee entrance.  She had covered that berm with the most energetic stones of the area.  I included this picture link so you can see the little ‘berm.’

This is as The Gypsy told me:

A family visited.  Their small child leaped from the car yelling excitedly about fairies and ran to the tee pee yelling that the fairies went in there.  When inside, the child, whether through observation or intuition or deduction, said, they went out through the top, pointing to the smoke hole.

An aside: I remember reading that fairies were said sometimes to have nests in the space where the poles come together at the top of tee pees.
