Today has been declared Appreciate a Dragon Day. It was started by an author back in 2004 to help promote her new novel about, well, dragons! I love these mythical creatures. They evoke in me a sense of wonder and awe. My dragons are always powerful guardians, keepers of ancient treasure and magical talismans. I haven’t actually written a dragon story yet, but I am sure there is one hidden in my mind somewhere.
Dragons are a part of ancient Celtic lore, pagan fairytales that have been embellished and transformed throughout the ages. We always associate dragons with magic, even those in the Chinese tradition I believe. My elder daughter has a particular interest in dragons, and she even has a beautiful framed picture of one standing in her bedroom, of which she is very proud. I don’t see dragons as creatures to fear. I see them as creatures to admire. If we treat them with respect they will happily be our guardians, our protectors, and our warriors.
