Renae Taylor's Profile

About

Renae's work is about memory, imagination and retaining the sense of wonder in the world that she felt as a child. It's about holding on to the idea that something wondrous and strange is just around the corner.

"The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before."
- Neil Gaiman
......................................................................
"It is not children only that one feeds with fairy tales."
~ Nathan der Weise (III)
......................................................................
I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.
How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
~Emily Dickinson
......................................................................
Know you what it is to be a child?...It is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear, it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul. ~ Francis Thompson
......................................................................
Although the world is very full of suffering it is also full of the overcoming of it.
~ Helen Keller
......................................................................
But remember always, as i told you first that this is all a fairy tale,and only fun and pretense; and, therefore, you are not to believe a word of it,even if it is true.
~ Charles Kingsley
..................................
"The creative adult is the child who has survived."
- Ursula K. Le Guin
...............................................................
There is wisdom of the Head and wisdom of the heart,
~ Charles Dickens
...............................................................
"It's easy to believe in magic when you're young. Anything you couldn't explain was magic then. It didn't matter if it was science or a fairy tale. Electricity and elves were both infinitely mysterious and equally possible -- elves probably more so."
~ Charles de Lint--
....................................................................
"Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else."

~James M. Barrie
.........................................
Come away, O human child!
To the waters of the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.
~ William Butler Yeats
