I've spent more time on other blogs than my own lately. But I've been enjoying writing for other folks about fairy tales, children's literature, and Madeleine L'Engle. And another post on Art House America about the importance of fairy tales; instead of viewing them as escaping reality, they actually point to a deeper reality that is beyond our limited understanding: http://www.arthouseamerica.com/blog/eliminating-the-darkness.html
Check out my post at DL Mayfield's blog on the book that changed my life (Madeleine L'Engle, hint hint). While you're there, read some other great posts about life-changing books.
