The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe/Alice In Wonderland/Christopher Robin And The Hundred Acre Wood/Harry Potter — I could go on, but you get the idea.
There is Reality and then there is the portal where you slip through to The Other Place. A Place of Magik. A Place where the rules — if there are rules — are completely turned around. A Place that is a little bit scary at first but eventually seems to feel like Home.
Scientists like to ponder the theory in quantum physics that several different timelines can exist at the same time. In fact, ALL timelines can occur simultaenously in some hypothesizes.

We call these children’s stories fairy tales and dismiss them as fantasy completely ignoring the content as whimsy. We seldom examine why these stories capture our hearts and minds as children and never quite relinquish their hold.
Suppose — just suppose — we aren’t the only timeline? Or Reality? What if children’s stories are one-way mirrors reflecting back to us the possibilities of All. The. Dimensions?
What if fairy tales were true? What if magik is a bend and a twist of energy? What if the portals existed? What if…
The Other Places were as Real as Earth, Pandemic 2020?
Can you just imagine the possibilities? No?
Of course not. Adults slip away from their knowing with each passing year.
Then one day — if you are very very lucky — you will find yourself in the company of a child. One who can explain just exactly how all this magik works. And there it is — in their eyes — Worlds upon worlds. Universes upon Universes. Endless — countless dimensions. Existing all together. All at the same time. All. The. Portals.
If you have not yet had this revelation there is only one piece of advice I can share.
It’s past time for you to sit yourself down with a storybook and 4-year-old so to learn The Truth about The Universe. And do pay attention to the pictures — they are the most important part — every child knows that.
“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” — Albert Einstein
