Oh, I love this illustration of Pippi Longstocking and as a captains's daughter and a fearless warmhearted girl its so fitting to the wanderer and discovery post.

It's all about finding ones way and discovering the right path.
And fearlessness facing the unknown coasts ahead.

You put it all so nicely. Thank you!

What a terrific vision of Pippi! I now need to locate my childhood copy & read it to my six year old.

this is fabulous- reminds me of the pic of Peter Pan in the movie Hook that the aged Wendy shows Peter- full of swagger and bravado and gumption!

Victoria-
Yes, as the years go by, the things that I remember the most are the ones where I forged ahead fearlessly and learned from taking risks.
My husband and I saw the house where Pippi was filmed years ago and all I could think of was her spirit, her energy and her "joie de vivre!"
