Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our children that no matter the magnitude of the terrifying situations in this world that they are just beginning to become aware of, they will have the courage to survive those situations when the time comes.

This is one topic that could do with almost a monthly or weekly treatment. I would love to see this become a regular feature at DD.

Wow, So beautiful. I just loved the pictures, what beautiful pieces of art. They reminded me my childhood when I use to listen fairy tales before going to bed. Memories..
