Monday's quote

Posted by Claudia Moser on 5:40 AM in ,

Reindeer are like metaphoric rain for Christmas lore: they soften the heart and give the soul dreams to grow on all year round.

Christmas reigns triumphant not only in the mind of a reindeer but in Christmas hearts, young and old.

Prancer and Dancer live more than in just a single, if not very popular, Christmas song; they live in the resting place that our collective Christmas revels make, rising to make the holiday something worth showing up for.

Christmas without reindeer is like snow without moonlight: it loses its sparkle.

Reindeer are the very twinkling in the eye of the holiday that we call Christmas.

From here

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
