The Map of Neverland

"I don’t know if you have ever seen a map of a 

person’s mind. Doctors sometimes draw maps of 

other parts of you, and your own map can become 

intensely interesting, but catch them trying to draw a 

map of a child’s mind, which is not only confused, but 

keeps going round all the time. There are zigzag lines 

on it, just like your temperature on a card, and these

 are probably roads in the island; for the Neverland is 

always more or less an island, with astonishing 

splashes of colour here and there, and coral reefs and 

rakish-looking craft in the offing, and savages and 

lonely lairs, and gnomes who are mostly tailors, and 

caves through which a river runs, and princes with six 

elder brothers, and a hut fast going to decay, and one 

very small old lady with a hooked nose." 

Here's to my boys who often remind me that

 Neverland is not a place but a state of mind. 

Love & Light,
