The Neverending Story: Falkor
The Neverending Story was one of my favorite movies as a child. In it, a bullied boy named Bastian, flees to his school attic to escapes the worries of his life. He enters a book and through that, the world Fantasia, which is in dire need of a hero and savior. Bastian learns to overcome his fear and triumphs in saving the land.
Having experienced some bullying in middle school, I related to this story on many levels.
And who could ever forget the beloved Falkor (the luck dragon)?
Apparently, not me.
I recently had an epiphany about my little Maltese dog, Lily.
Can you spot the resemblance?
Perhaps she’s my luck dragon.
But regardless, I love her.
