From Basement to Sanctuary

by Holly Christine Hayes

2018 Illumination Award

From my perspective, she was a queen fairy.

I envisioned her kingdom to be deep in the sea. Her color was mystical green, but she radiated blue light.... And suddenly, we were surrounded by rivulets, endless sky, trees, mountains, and fields of flowers, all inhabited by ethereal and illusive gnomes, goblins, elves, and fairies.

—from Dear Prudence: The Story Behind the Song by Prudence Farrow Bruns
