“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
When we are young, we can see magic everywhere. We can hear the sleighbells of the reindeer and the chatter of the fairies. We are inspired by the stories we read in books, believing good will overcome evil and the Princess will awaken if we are brave enough to face the dragon.
And then we mature, and believe that it is all tilting at windmills, impossible quests and dreams.
Maybe, if you are lucky, eventually you encounter an angel that makes you believe in the great stories again. Who makes you believe in the noble quests and treasures that lie on ont other side of the perilous bridge.
Go forth to adventure, spurred on by the Muse.
