Am I the only one at the age of
21 who still sheds a tear for The Little Matchgirl?
There was one story in the complete edition of HCA's fairy tales that my father warned me against reading because it was so sad - The Ice Maiden
(not to be confused with The Snow Queen
). I still haven't attempted it!
I don't remember The Ice Maiden
- I'll have to look it up The Little Matchgirl
is so very sad, but I've just got a copy of Gregory Maguire's short story Matchless
, where he weaves the matchgirl's story in with one of another child. Good stuff
Another one I can't bear to read is Oscar Wilde's The Happy Prince
("swallow, little swallow"...
) Where are the tissues?

'Earth Day' today, apparently!
Is this part of a trilogy,"Earth, Sea & Sky"?
Or perhaps,"Earth, Wind & Fire"?!
Or even,"Earth, Air, Fire & Water"? (Admittedly more of a quadrivium though)
It's very pretty, but I've been spoiled now - I want things to happen when I click on it or move the cursor over it - I want action logos
What do we do on Earth Day?
