#FridayFantasy . . . The trials our heroes encountered…

“The trials our heroes encountered in their quests illustrated the process of transformation: from youth to adulthood, from victim to hero, from a maimed state into wholeness, from passivity to action. It’s this transformational subtext that gives true fairy tales their particular power: not as a quaint escape from the harsh realities of modern life, but in their symbolic portrayal of all the dark and bright life has to offer.”

Quote by Terri Windling, “Fairy Tales and the Healing Journey.” Illustration by Julek Heller, “Knights.”
