Fairy tales are THE TRUTH.
They are what makes us feel ALIVE for it is in the MAGIC that we seek solace NOT in reality.
Yeah, THAT MUCH IS [PRETTY CLEAR but why?
Why is it that magic appeals to us more than our mundane lives?
No, no. It can’t be the USUAL answer. It has to be something VERY SIMPLE. So simple that we often forget that it even exists. I have forgotten why it is that fairy tales tugs at that portion of our hearts that NONE OTHER CAN.
Why is it that our minds, suppress their judgement COMPLETELY, when these little tales of eternal truth cloaked in the garb of imagery and heavenly imagination are provided to our senses? Why is it that we FEEL MORE KEENLY, SEE MORE CLEARLY, and LIVE MORE BEAUTIFULLY when we believe in them and it all TURNS AROUND when we don’t?
Well,these questions have always been present in my mind, though passively. They may present themselves in NUMEROUS WAYS but the essence remains the same. But, the feeling got stronger when reading a post from THE BEST LIBRARIAN IN THE WHOLE GOD DAMN WORLD I was reminded of these little magic wands again A.K.A. FAIRY TALES. And so, I decided right there and then that —–
I AM GOING TO OBSESS OVER Grimm’s Fairy Tales this month!!
SOUNDS FUN, RIGHT?
So, suspend your judgement, suspend your RATIONAL mind, SUSPEND EVERYTHING THAT ISN’T YOUR HEART as we explore these tales, how they were written, what’s the meaning behind them, and MOST IMPORTANTLY :
WHY ARE THEY SO APPEALING?
I HOPE to reach the answer to it all by the end of the month BUT HEY, if I can’t, then, CONTRARY to the USUAL belief, ”TOMORROW ALWAYS COMES” 😉
So, what do you think?
Do you like to read FAIRY TALES?
