This morning I surrendered my songwriting time to read to my daughter who is home sick from school. We finished George MacDonald’s At the Back of the North Wind, and I thought this statement from the character North Wind worth sharing:

I read this book a few years ago. My favorite part is the story of Little Daylight.
