|My Favorite Christmas Ornament|
In the blink of an eye, I had acquired books about historical carousels, large posters of collectible stamps of carousels, and a number of porcelain carousel animals which played songs when you wound the keys on their wooden bases.
"Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears." - Les Brown
Perhaps that was another reason why I loved carousels so much. They were safe enough for me; a youth with many anxieties and phobias, to love, and "amusing" enough to tap the heart of my creativity. Carousels were magical, yet practical.
Don't we all need a bit of practical magic in our lives?
