A big facet of my childhood was stories about dragons! Dragons are back in style, more popular than ever with all the role playing games and fantasy literature of today. My favorite is Puff, the Magic Dragon. My infant son fell asleep most nights to my rendering of Puff; his first painting was of a dragon, and as a young adult, he works on models of dragons for his gaming. Like mother, like son? This dragon has seen better days, but he does seem to be laughing.
