Charles de Lint | Weekly Quote 27

Mulluane | Thursday, November 13, 2014 | 2 Comments so far

“I want to be magic.

I want to touch the heart of the world

and make it smile.

I want to be a friend of elves

and live in a tree.

Or under a hill.

I want to marry a moonbeam and

hear the stars sing.

I don't want to pretend at magic anymore.

I want to be magic.”

-- Charles de Lint --

  1. Lovely quote, as usual and gorgeous image! I particularly love the shining moon in the upper left corner, it does possess its own kind of magic, because I can't take my eyes off it... Well done!

    Oh, and before I forget - AGAIN! grrrr... - to mention it, I absolutely LOVE the bat in your blog header! I've been meaning to tell you for quite some time, but my only surviving neuron is not cooperating lately... Ok, less than usual, that's it! :-D

    1. Thanks! Definately a magical quote :>)

      I'm pretty fond of the bat myself! I created it for the theme park series and decided it needed a permanent home. Kinda wish I could have figured out how to make a girl bat but that's ok. That is Grandpa bat showing I came from a long line of old bats :>P
