"i stood willingly and gladly in the characters of everything - other people, trees, clouds. and this is what i learned, that the world's otherness is antidote to confusion - that standing within this otherness - the beauty and the mystery of the world, out in the fields or deep inside books - can re-dignify the worst-stung heart." - mary oliver

moomin tales are the warmest and wisest i have ever read; they inspire me to be a good friend and a tireless explorer. and my new snufkin magnet embodies everything he stands for: "...but that's how it is when you start wanting to have things. now, i just look at them, and when i go away i carry them in my head. then my hands are always free, because i don't have to carry a suitcase."
