<<<< CLICK for FAERiE ALBUM
‘The Calling’ by Martin Luther McCoy dropped in 99, just as our friendship was beginning to bloom beyond platonic. Chaz introduced me to the album, and we enjoyed the whole thing, but one song was especially significant for us. The aesthetic conjured on the track Butta Fly Love resonated deeply with the vibe we were cultivating together, and the song became one of our earliest anthems. Butterflies, wings and faeries became part of our private symbology of affirmation, and Chaz began to build a collection of fae art.
By the time our children joined us, fae culture was already an entrenched aspect of Lovemore lore, representative as it was of constructive curiosity, indomitable freedom, and boundless love. In a world that would encourage our children to assume limitation, a world that will impose superficial judgement, we sought to empower them with magical sight… To seek wonder, to anticipate enchantment, and most importantly, to honor their outlook as a conscious lens- to harness the power of perception.
We chose the BE the Faeries we wished to see in the world… and thereby slipped the mundane realm, to dwell in a Fantasy of our own creation…
