Dragons

Fairy tales are more than true — not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten. — G. K. Chesterton, as quoted in Coraline (2004) by Neil Gaiman, epigraph.

In the above quote G.K. Chesterfirld gave us words of great wisdom and power. However dragons have always been creatures of wisdom and firece warriors if called to battle. My nightmare creatures were of man and mob, maddened uncaring and unreasoning. Hunted and chased without safe haven those were my terrors of the dark night. Dragons were never my enemies. I suppose should I sit with a dragon and become a tea time snack I will have been proven wrong. Dragons, in my thoughts would be more inclined to rise above the animal instincts we share. Dragons still exist in my world. Living in my imagination and my writing, soaring in my dreams, resting upon hoards of knowledge and books. Gems and a little gold to brighten things up a bit.

Dragons aren’t to be beaten, they are to teach us to soar above our animal instincts and let the pettiness go. Cheers, james

  1. I love Puff, the magic dragon. The song lives in my head. There’s a dragon in a playground near us. He spits out water for the kids in the summer. I love looking at it, no matter the season.
