Neil Gaiman dances on tired eyelids!
Reading him is like opening your front door to find a shiny gold sovereign in the beak of a magpie wearing a pink velvet coat!
Fragile Things they are. Fragile because they leap up and samba!
'I like things to be story shaped.
Reality, however is not story shaped, and the eruptions of the odd into our lives are not story shaped either.They do not end in entirely satifactory ways.Recounting the strange is like telling one's dreams: one can communicate the events of a dream, but not the emotional content, the way that a dream can colour one's entire day.'
How far do we all try to resist the stories that are not story shaped?!
Yet with confidence-for-life, we can, like Neil Gaiman, open our doors to Fragile Things and greet with good humour and resourcefulness the magpie wearing the pink velevt coat!
By the way, The magpie just appeared as I was typing.
That's the beauty of Neil Gaiman and FLOW!
