Magic Marker Monday — Neverland…


It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

The 9-year-old has recently become intrigued with a Junior Classics copy of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan that we came across in a used book store a couple of weeks ago.

Since then, she and the 6-year-old have transformed my living room couch into Hook’s pirate ship, declared the living room floor to be Mermaid Lagoon and the underside of the dining room table to be the hideout of Pan and the Lost boys.

There have been epic sword fights, fairy flights and Indian pow wows. As well as many, many doodles documenting Neverland and a host of imaginary adventures.

And in spite of the inevitable disarray that follows in the wake of such adventures, I find myself hoping that this little bit of childhood pixie dust isn’t swift to make an exit.
