“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”― C.S. Lewis
Don't grow up! It's a trap!
Children have a beautiful sense of joy and wonder that seems innate, yet for so many of us, we lose this as we "learn" the ways of life and modern society. We stop believing in magic and miracles.
Children's stories, movies and fairy tales can bring us back to that sense of wonder and remind us to focus on the beauty that still exists in the world. Delighting in these stories is actually one of my favorite self-care activities.
As artists, many of us understand the importance of celebrating and expressing the beauty and magic of our world, and I believe it is our job to share that intention and help the world remember.
Embarking on my birthday month, this quote seems appropriate. What a gift to be old enough to revisit and remember this childhood magic!
Wishing you a M A G I C A L Monday and a wondrous week!
