Oh! This has been such a long time in coming (even for a gnome). FINALLY, FINALLY all is in place for what may be the most exciting day of my life! After what seems a lifetime (but CLEARLY isn't, since it certainly didn't take 375 years), our little gnome community in Gnome Valley is ready to unveil itself to the humans!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to see what transpires. Hopefully, something. It would be such a sad tale if, after all the discussions, negotiations, concerns, doubts and worries about our decision to uncloak some of our entrances and share some of our stories, nothing happened!
My hope for this project (which, it's probably fair to say, was my idea but was NOT very popular at first) is that by unveiling ourselves to our human neighbors in Cashmere WA we learn from each other, enjoy each other and help one another make this little slice of the world we call home an even happier and joy-filled place (which would be no small feat - Cashmere WA and Gnome Valley are pretty darn nice places already!). Hats off to the humans I have lived among and watched for so very long! Hats off! Hats off! And a big, big, big, grand "HALLO!" from THE GNOMES OF CASHMERE!!!!
I am Neva Zella Whipple Fairhair, IX. I am the great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great granddaughter of the first gnome king of Norway. I live in Gnome Valley USA (which to humans is called Cashmere, WA)
