I love the timelessness of fairy tales. The way an old story can be told time and time again in many different ways. I think it is largely because they get at something deeper. Themes of love, kindness, trust, and perseverance are eternal. They make up the essence of what it means to be human. The way we adapt them signals the way we are changing ourselves. That is the beauty of stories. They capture the ever-evolving human spirit and put it on display.
