The Mimi Fairy

Mimis are fairy-like beings of Arnhem Land in the folklore of the Indigenous Australians of northern Australia. They are described as having extremely thin and elongated bodies, so thin as to be in danger of breaking in case of a high wind. To avoid this, they usually spend most of their time living in rock crevices. They are said to have taught the Aborigines of Australia how to hunt, prepare kangaroo meat and use fire. They are like humans but they live in a different dimension.
Their name might come from the song of a Zebra Finch.

I like that...."like humans but they live in another dimension."

I adore folk tales. I so hope that I am doing my part in the world to keep
the spoken word alive.

Have a creative day.

A River of Stones Final Post #31

Deeply snuggled under the electric blanket, the very best kind of snuggle, butt to butt with a giant, snoring yellow dog, cat snoozing on my feet and goat sound asleep breathing perfectly.

I hate you alarm clock.

My sincere thanks to Fiona for setting up such an amazing challenge.
What started as 'what shall I write?' has ended in 'please, may we have a new challenge?' We like direction!
