Humility is essential for survival--and kids willingly bestow us with strong doses of humility.

I am reminded of the boy who sent me a note: "After hearing you speak, I now know you don't have to be very smart after all to be a writer. Nothing less than the power of creation.

The first step to surviving in this world is often finding some way to imagine a new world. This is more than "just" an escape, because if you can imagine something new, you can start to create it. From a writer's standpoint, fantasy must be more real than reality.

All the senses need to be engaged, yet the basic rules of the world must fit. This is not an easy task--but if it works I would like to share two recent experiences of imagination creating new worlds: The first example was a visit to a school in Brooklyn, New York with Barbara Kiefer of Columbia University.

These students are tough kids in a very tough place. However, their classroom is a haven for them--and for their imaginations--which are so alive and so real. These kids, who have every excuse to be downtrodden and despairing, are wholly alive. These kids can imagine and they can create.

These kids do not just get through their day--they affect the quality of their day. The second example was a visit to the Gwich'in Athabascan tribe in Alaska.

I was invited to be an observer at the Solstice celebration at one of their villages above the Arctic Circle. I ate lots of smoked salmon and swatted lots of mosquitoes while camping along the Yukon River banks.

The Gwich'ins are "The people of the Caribou"--and it shows in their dances, their songs, their metaphors, and even their calendar of seasons. They are regaining their unity as a people--roaming together like the caribou. These people are enduring tough times--they are no strangers to alcoholism, drug abuse, and domestic violence.

Yet their stories provide them with an anchor, a connection--both with their land, their place--and with their traditions, their way of life. This brings to mind these words by Martin Luther King Jr.

In these different places, I met kids dealing with great troubles who were helped by the power and gift of stories.

Sometimes the stories that were told were ancient tales, but always told in new voices--their own voices. In a real sense--just as we are what we eat--we are what we imagine.

Also, by imagining, they are making choices, and seeing that their choices matter. And therefore, they themselves matter. These kids know that their struggles are real.

Through imagination, though, they discover that their hopes are also real. In my books, the characters have sometimes met their struggles and challenges by changing into other people, other creatures--trees, stones, beams of light. Right now, I am dealing with a tough kid in a tough time: Merlin.

In The Lost Years of Merlin Barron epic, the opening scene creates the key metaphor: A boy washes ashore on a strange coast in Wales, knowing nothing about himself--let alone his inner magic. He must learn about love, grief, power; about human frailty as well as ideals; about dark and light, masculine and feminine. These discoveries, challenges, gains, and losses ultimately prepare him to be the legendary wizard Merlin--as he discovers that inner magic. While he is experiencing the feeling of freedom in this tree, a violent storm erupts.

Soon Merlin feels he is part of the tree--a creature of the land yet more a part of the wind itself. When at last the storm subsides, the entire world seems newly reborn--as does Merlin himself.

He understands, for the first time in his life, that the Earth is always being remade, that life is always being renewed. From the recently published book three of the epic, The Fires of Merlin Barron : Merlin believes that he has lost all his power. To survive, he must become a deer--a hard transformation.

But it is only possible if he can truly imagine it. And he must imagine it with exquisite detail: right down to hearing not with his ears but with his hooves, as he bounds across the plains. Here is what happens to Merlin as his senses expand, taking him to places he has never known before: Bounding through the grasses, tinted by the onset of autumn, I realized that my sight was good.

Very good. No longer relying on my second sight, which in daytime had never measured up to true eyesight, I relished the details, the edges, the textures. Sometimes I even slowed my running just to look more closely.

Dewdrops clinging to a spiderweb, tufts of grass bending as gracefully as a rainbow, airborne seed drifting on the wind. Whether my eyes were still coal black, or brown like my companions', I could not tell.

Yet that mattered not at all, for they were, at last, open windows to the world. As good as my eyesight had become, my sense of smell had grown even better.

Intimate aromas came to me from all around. I smelled, with relief, the diminishing traces of smoke.

And I drank in, unrestrainedly, the subtle aromas of this bright autumn day. Yet the newest of all my senses, it seemed, was my hearing. Sounds that I had never known existed washed over me in a constant stream.

I heard not only the continual pounding of my own hooves, and the distinctive weight and timing of the hooves of the two deer ahead of me but also our echoing reverberations through the soil. Even as I ran, I caught whispers of a dragonfly's wings humming and a field mouse's legs scurrying. Somehow, in a mysterious way, I was listening not just to sounds, but to the land itself.The Lost Years of Merlin Embed.

Winter: ceaseless rains, frosty gales, more rains brewing. But it is only possible if he can truly imagine it.

Not only did I hear them. Kate felt herself beginning to breathe in unison.

Very good. Yet the secret of his identity seems always to escape him. Nothing less than the power of creation.

In other words, she must become a tree.

I do love acidly. Review my other posts. I have always been a very creative person and find it relaxing to indulge in tv watching.
