“Frost grows on the window glass, forming whorl patterns of lovely translucent geometry.
Breathe on the glass, and you give frost more ammunition.
Now it can build castles and cities and whole ice continents with your breath’s vapor.
In a few blinks you can almost see the winter fairies moving in . . .
But first, you hear the crackle of their wings.”

“Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame!”
-WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS

“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?”

“Tink was not all bad: or, rather, she was all bad just now, but, on the other hand, sometimes she was all good. Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time. They are, however, allowed to change, only it must be a complete change.”

“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”

“Noble dragons don’t have friends. The nearest they can get to the idea is an enemy who is still alive.”
-TERRY PRATCHETT, GUARDS! GUARDS!

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

“If the sky could dream, it would dream of dragons.”

“You have nice manners for a thief and a liar,” said the dragon.”
—J.R.R. TOLKIEN (THE HOBBIT, OR THERE AND BACK AGAIN)
And one more because I love dragons, and Steph Law!
Painting “Dragon Knot” by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, Shadowscapes.com.
“Remember with your heart. Go back, go back and go back. The skies of this world were always meant to have dragons. When they are not here, humans miss them. Some never think of them, of course. But some children, from the time they are small, they look up at the blue summer sky and watch for something that never comes. Because they know. Something that was supposed to be there faded and vanished. Something that we must bring back, you and I.”
Music “Moonlight Sonata” by Ludwig van Beethoven.
Performed by Dr. Phibes and the Ten Plagues of Egypt.
