From a young age I have been completely enamoured by anything fantastical from fairies to mermaids, vampires and werewolves. It's an odd fascination which has meant I am constantly gravitating towards books, films and artwork which depicts anything magical. I have a feeling it's me holding onto the inner child inside and that's just fine! The promise of the nemesis being taken down by the hero or heroine always fills me with hope and there is nothing better than curling up on the sofa or lying down in the garden with a good book which is pure escapism.
I hope I don't lose that view of the world that I have as I get older. Of course I'm realistic and don't believe there are fairies waiting at the bottom of my garden for me but I do carry with me a sometimes whimsical view of the world, which I think is good for me as it gives me hope when things are tough and looking bleak, particularly at the moment but it always promises one thing to me - I know that I can face down my own dragons!
I think this quote by Neil Gaiman pretty much sums it up for me.
