“Did you know you were an enchanter?”


I received an email from my mom today with the subject line: “Did you know you were an enchanter?”

No, I certainly did not ~ I had to read further. Inside the body of the email there was a quote: 

“In a library we are surrounded by many hundreds of dear friends imprisoned by an enchanter in paper and leathern boxes” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Although I love to think of Cinderella Smith as a ‘dear friend’, I hate to think I’ve ‘imprisoned’ her. I feel more as if I’ve set her free. After being trapped in my head, she’s out in the world now, shared with others. That being said though, it sure is fun to think of myself as an enchanter.
