“When the baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all wentskipping about, and that was the beginning of the fairies.”
–Sir James Barrie, Peter Pan
I was born from story. In a story. I’ve discussed what’s in a name on this blog before. Today I’m getting personal. What’s in my name? The name Wendy originated from Peter Pan.
And Wendy wasn’t just a casual mention in this epic tale. Wendy was a storyteller. She passed hope on to the Lost Boys. Her stories meant something to people.
And here I am all these years later. A real Wendy. Inspired to do the same.
Maybe we’re all born of stories.
Margaret Atwood wrote, “In the end, we’ll all become stories.”
