A Cafe For Authors and Avid Readers
Many people ask us this question: If you are elves, why don't you have pointed ears? We, like most elfin folk, love pointed ears. Alas, most of us don’t have pointed ears, although there are some who do, and wish we had. Some of us put on prosthetic ears, as some faeries put on faerie wings, and some of us have even undergone body modification to make our ears pointed. That’s how much we love pointed ears.
To those who don’t believe in elves, or at least don’t believe we are elves, the lack of pointed ears is proof that we are not. But then, those individuals have a basically materialistic viewpoint of the nature of the Universe and we have an energetic and magical viewpoint (as one would expect from a magical people), which is to say we don’t judge people by their looks but by their actions. It is not our appearance that makes us elves, but living by the principles of Elfin that we call the Elven Way (see our book titled The Elven Way: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones).
Still, we love pointed ears, just as faeries love wings, and witches and magicians, wizards and warriors love the accouterments of their being. You don’t have to wear a pointed hat to be a witch, or carry a staff to be a wizard; being a wizard, witch, magician or whatever is about doing magic, not having a particular look. But when you love the look, as we do, why not embrace it?
