Adventures that Never Die

Swords clash, fire bursts, a dragon’s roar reverberates across the open field.  A man steps forwards, a thick brown staff in one hand.  A horse whinnies in the distance, pawing at the ground.  The old man smiles, lifts his hands, and begins his spell . . . 
From a boy who didn’t believe in growing up, to a white rabbit who could tell time, the magic in adventures of your childhood never really end.  El Zorro left more than a “Z” for his legacy – he left the memories of his blazing sword and flaring courage in your mind.  

There’s something that connects in the readers’ mind, when they remember these stories.  Remember how unrealistic Alice was to follow a rabbit down a hole, or Dorothy was for following a yellow brick road to an unknown place?  Perhaps it is her personality.  Anne of Green Gables is so influential because she still believes.  “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” “The Three Musketeers,” “The Scarlet Pimpernel,” and “Ivanhoe,” each tell a different and captivating tale.  

First Truth” is another tale to try for all adventure lovers, or “The Cheshire Cat's Eye.”

Whether it’s magic, or fairies, or yourself in which you still believe, the message of stories is not only enjoyable, but revitalizing.  Remember what drew you to these adventures.   Enjoy a good book again, or experience a new one.
