Fairy tales are more than true;
not because they tell us that dragons exist,
but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

- Neil Gaiman

Time does not hold the secret to thy youth,
though time appears to steal thy years away...
time can not contain the essence of being ageless.

For in this world, beloved of God, in this world
apart from the Garden of the things that once were 
that you remember now so well in thy heart of hearts
everywhere - all things are constantly falling away...
all things are set in their motion in heaven and on earth
and come each to their own season, season under the sun.

So make a promise to yourself, my darling Starshine,
as early as your years will allow you to do so in thy soul -
that thou will always in thy spirit remain in thy youth;
that thou will in thy heart never lose thy love of wonder 
and in thy mind never lose room enough for better beliefs.

Make a promise to remain and to learn, and to love...
and to never grow tired of remaining, and of loving to remain
at the foot of the Master...

Work hard. Pray hard. Smile Easy.

Child-like not child-ish.
