Quote of the Day: Dragons

This is me somedays at work, at home or when I am trying to write. I think it would be nice to jump off a cliff, flick my wings open and soar into the heavens. Then my tea kettle screams and its tea time. And since dragons have a hard time holding and drinking a cup of tea. Its okay to be a person.

Cheers, james

Quote of the Day: Coffee

Dragons and coffee. The only thing better would be a steaming cup of Earl Greyer. There are three loves in my life other than the hubby and kids. Dragons, tea, and writing or reading on a rainy evening in front of a cheerful fireplace. Okay there might be more than three things there.

Have a great day. Cheers, james

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
