Many many moons ago, in a little village lost from the hand of God somewhere in the mountains of
there lived a very old and wise woman who believed that the universe is ruled
by supernatural forces and we ourselves, part of this vast dynamic cobweb of
The woman's name was María Luz de Luna Arrazán, and she was our great great grandmother.
Every day at the kiss of sundown María Luz de Luna Arrazán used to sit down and enlightened us her great great granddaughters with strange stories and mysterious fairytales of a vast, unbroken forest full of shadows and mysterious events that even made the little creatures of the forest to tremble with fear. Stories that we always believed true, and always, always left her side wanting to hear more.
She used to tell us that fairies materialize from sparkling dew drops and that wood imps and other entities of the forest such as witches and trolls would silently slip into dusky shadows whenever humans trod too near. Some were described as being as small and delicate as mosquitoes, while others were said to be as strong and coarse as bears. A few supposedly even changed their appearance right before one's very eyes. Which it always gets me to wonder if perhaps all these fur creatures I happen to see wandering through my garden from time to time and disappearing in front of my eyes (yes, disappearing!) may be those invisible dwellers of a mysterious world in disguise our great great grandmother María Luz de Luna used to tells us about....
The idea that a supernatural force may be at work somewhere in the universe with the sole purpose of tricking humanity may sound odd at first, but considering the vast wealth of reports of seemingly supernatural creatures, it may deserve a second look, don't you think so?
