Tiny Anthologies: Gnome Homes . photos by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

Here are some photos of mine that I fancifully call ‘gnome homes’. The first two are standard ‘root gnome’ homes. Then there are three photos of ‘fern gnome homes’. Then there are two photos of ‘city gnome homes’.

Gnomes like dark places; that is clear. From their ability to improvise new homes in the cities of Earth, I can tell these types of nature spirits are highly intelligent and adaptible, despite their earthly bearings …

The Gnomes and Trolls of John Bauer . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 12 May 2022
Location: San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California

  • ARE THESE GNOMES?
  • THE HICCUP: IS THIS A TROLL?
  • CONCLUSION

Dear Ones,

Here are some of the nature spirits painted by John Bauer. I like his illustrations very much!  There is a hiccup which I will discuss below. At any rate, here are what seem to me to be quite good representations of gnomes and a changeling …

ARE THESE GNOMES?

THE HICCUP: IS THIS A TROLL?

From the size and bearing of the nature spirits shown above, it seems to me the John Bauer painted there what I call ‘gnomes’. Yet the painter calls them ‘trolls’.

I do see what I call ‘trolls’ in other paintings produced by John Bauer. These look rather like the nature spirits shown below, but are much larger … which are a good deal taller than a young man would be. Here is one such illustration of what I might call a ‘troll’ …

Image: “Here is a piece of a troll herb which nobody else can find,” by John Farmer, 1912, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:H%C3%A4r_ska_du_f%C3%A5_en_bit_av_en_troll%C3%B6rt,_som_ingen_mer_%C3%A4n_jag_kan_leta_r%C3%A4tt_p%C3%A5.jpg … public domain … DESCRIPTION: This is an illustration for “The Boy Who Was Never Afraid” by Alfred Smedberg, produced by John Bauer for “Among Gnomes and Trolls.”

CONCLUSION

From this I gather it may be that there is a relationship between gnomes and trolls, much in the way there is a relationship between the Lesser Dwarves and the Greater Dwarves.

I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

PIXIES IN THE WOODS

This video is just for fun, as the gentleman is in animatronics …

Video: “Some Pixies Show Up in the Woods,” by Erwin Saunders, 31 March 2022 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQaObhP-x08 ..

Still, it is quite a bit of fun, and it is nice that the gentleman is introducing people to the world of nature spirits.

Dad’s Boots . photos adapted by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 9 May 2021

Dear Ones,

Here are two adaptions of a photo I found touching. It has to do with fatherhood. Those are my Dad’s boots on the left, and me on the right, and he that held the camera.

If you look closely at the third photo, which is a ‘markup’, you can see a gnome on the ground, looking up at me. It looks like a friendly gnome, but serious, in the way of all the gnomes I have run across so far …

Jacaranda Tree Spirit Friendships . photos and markups by Alice B. Clagett

Imaged on 8 September 2020; published on 3 January 2022
Location: Los Angeles, California                                                                

Dear Ones,

These are photos and photo markups of a jacaranda tree and playful images drawn by the spirits of the jacaranda tree. It looks to me like the jacaranda tree spirit created these images out of fondness for some brownies and gnomes and elves that live in the forested back yard across the street, and also maybe for one man that may have lived nearby at one time …
