The Onion Girl, (c) 2001 by Charles de Lint
"They (fairy tales) make rivers run with wine only to make us remember, for one wild moment, that they run with water."
-G.K. Chesterson, from Orthodoxy
"It was you, it was you, who said that dreams come true
And it was you, it was you, who said that mine would, too
And it was you who said that all I had to do was to believe
But when your ivory towers tumbled down, they tumbled down on me."
-Fred Eaglesmith, from "It Was You"
"It's the family you choose that counts."
