Children trying on the world

fantasy must be true

there’s no actual

to prove it’s not factual

a child’s wish come true

awaiting the ice-wagon

and ward off the snap-dragon

A person who had never listened to nor read a tale or myth or parable or story, would remain ignorant of his own emotional and spiritual heights and depths, would not know fully what it is to be human. – Ursula K Le Guin

      1. You’re welcome Eugenia! I’m good as long as I don’t try to walk! It will be taken care of on coming Saturday. An operation to fix the ankle and the fallen arch.


  1. I can see where reading whatever is considered truthful words can save a world. Can you let me know the name of the book?😉


    1. Thank you, Derrick. Yes, relevant indeed! IMO, some fairy tales are too scary for children and can even be bothersome for adults. However, a child’s imagination will exist whether or not it’s headed in the right direction.
