Comment on In the empty halls of symbols

  1. What a lovely tale! I am not familiar with the original canon, but the title was so interesting. I love the way the silence works, and the magic. I love a gift being the idea of a gift, the gesture- and the way it is interpreted as such. I love the beautiful dog! I hope she and the boy have great adventures.

    1. Thank you very much! There's no canon beyond the painting linked at the top, although it was fun to try to make it feel like a part of a much bigger whole - like my distant memories of what reading The Neverending Story felt like.
      And I'm glad the dog in particular was appreciated! I'm a simple soul, I see a dog, I write about the dog. I'm sure she and the boy went on to have a fantastic journey! Maybe the real bildungsroman was the dogs we met along the way, hah.
