Arvind's: Fairy Tales Houses in Real World

Arvind's: Fairy Tales Houses in Real World | Fairy tales, Folklore, and Myths | Scoop.it
Fairy Tales Houses in Real World. Amazing fairy tales houses that were built in the real world. I wouldn't want to live in one of them, but I must admit that most of them look very cool. Fairy Tales Houses in Real World (46 pics) ...

 

I, on the other hand, definately do aspire to someday live in a castle or storybook-style house. Fun set of pictures, even if a few of them were clearly taken in amusement parks.

Charles de Lint: Music - Crow Girls EP - Crow Girls

Charles de Lint: Music - Crow Girls EP - Crow Girls | Fairy tales, Folklore, and Myths | Scoop.it
Charles de Lint shows that, far from being escapism, contemporary fantasy can be the deep mythic literature of our time..

 

The song Crow Girls, written (I think, if I'm interpretting the page correctly) by Samuel M. Key and sung by de Lint's wife, Mary Ann Harris, is based on the Crow Girls found in de Lint's stories.

“The job of a storyteller is to speak the truth. But what we feel most deeply can’t be spoken in words alone. At this level, only images connect. And here, story becomes symbol; symbol is myth. And myth is truth.”...

I read these as a child and found that they were often quite sad. Beautiful, grim, extraordinary, and painful in much the way that Andersen's work is.

building castles in the air: fairytales | Fairy tales, Folklore, and Myths | Scoop.it

"Growing up, I was never encouraged to believe in fairytales. Maybe that's a good thing, it's kept me from having over-the-top, unrealistic expectations about love or perfect endings for most of my life. I can make sense of the logic behind this outlook; having extravagant visions of the future most often leads to heartache and misery when they inevitably fall apart."

We were on our way back to Yuma following a futile attempt to find Pegleg's lost gold mine out in the heat and dust of the desert. We stopped to make camp for the night between a rock and a hard place, and soon my friend Eddie was snoring loud enough to wake the dead. I drifted off myself, and started dreaming about the pretty girl I was engaged to marry.
