I have a delightful vintage book of Nordic fairy tales I wanted to share, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere! So I has to settle on a favorite of mine. (Of course I can’t possibly choose only one.)
The story of Peter Pan and the Darlings is special to me because I still try to find bits of Neverland in my everyday. Neverland is not so much a real place anymore, but a place in my thoughts where I can be free and unrestricted. It’s where uninhibited creativity happens and stories happen and impossible things are everywhere. Usually I find Neverland when I’m sleeping, but sometimes I manage to find myself there during the day and when I get back to reality, the day is a little brighter and jollier because imagination is powerful and in a way fairy tales can come true. 😉
The image is of a lesser knows scene from the story. Peter is out alone at night and has come to be perched on a small rock-island in a cove. There he ponders his little life and his adventures, and wonders abut the could-be’s. this is also one of my favorite lines in the book.
“To die would be an awfully big adventure.”
