“Sometimes I think that maybe we are just stories. Like we may as well just be words on a page, because we’re only what we’ve done and what we are going to do.”
– Jodie Lynn Anderson, Tiger Lily
Seeing tiger lilies blossom in my near-by park, always makes me think of my childhood hero Peter Pan.
I love the story of this boy who refuses to grow up and has adventures instead.
I think I watched nearly every movie that has been made about him too, starting with the silent movie starring Betty Bronson as Peter (just brilliant), the Disney movie of course, “Hook” with the incomparable Robin Williams and “Finding Neverland” with Kate Winslet and Johnny Depp.
This story created by J.M. Barrie touched the hearts and souls of countless children (and grown-ups) and let them see the boundless marvels of fantasy, triggering their own imagination and inspiring them to live their dreams.
And how about you? Did you have any (fictional) childhood heroes as well?
