Goblin Door …

Wanna live underground?

Sarah: Ouch, it bit me!
Hoggle: What’d you expect fairies to do?
Sarah: I thought they did nice things … like grant wishes!
Hoggle: Hmph, shows how much you know.

‘Through dangers untold & hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here’ … to Ann Arbor, Michigan in an attempt to gain entry to the ‘castle beyond the Goblin City.’ Like, presumably behind this Goblin Door.

A spider-web – which, alas, proved elusive to capture with my Droid phone (you can see a glimpse of it just under the stoop) – along with fresh offerings of cigarette butts & bubble gum wads indicated high goblin traffic.

Jonathan B. Wright, discoverer & archivist of Ann Arbor’s mysterious (& child-height) Fairy Doors steadfastly refuses to divulge its location, owing to goblinhood’s bad reputation.

Fairies, they get all the good press.
