Directions to Neverland

“Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning. ”

Sir James Barrie, Peter Pan

My favorite book and movie of all time has to be Peter Pan. It is a book filled with childhood memories, of adventure and even love. It is a special book for, in it, one can always return to those pleasant days of childhood in our dreams. And yes I remember, when I, a child, left the movie on a warm summer evening, looked up and there saw the moon larger than life with two bright stars to the right.

“So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings,  forever, in Never Never Land!”

One can find ceaseless wonder in rereading Peter Pan.

For instance, why is it that the author uses the distinct double negative, “Never never” to describe the magical land where Peter and the Lost Boys live? Is it not that “never never” becomes “ever” and then “forever”?
