Thumbelina and the Four Seasons
The story Thumbelina, by Hans Christian Andersen, has inspired me for as long as I can remember. When we are young, the world is so big and magical and I think you lose some of that when you grow up. I like to imagine a place where everything is still a little unknown, and there is so much left to discover. Stories like Thumbelina help you to see your own commonplace world with fresh eyes and you can begin to appreciate just how amazing the world really is. It's like being a child again in many ways, and capturing that sense of wonder about the world around us.
Daughters of Oceanus
A new series!
In Greco-Roman Mythology, the Oceanus were the beautiful and divine nature spirits who ruled over the fresh water elements of earth. They were the daughters of the fresh-water stream Okeanos and his wife Tethys. These goddesses included cloud, breeze, fountain, and floral nymphs. It was their job to watch over the plants and animals who dwelled within their domain, and were seen as the protectors of young girls.
