A Tale of Transformation

Since the Middle Ages, we’ve come a long way from trembling at the mere mention of dragons. In European civilization, we found solace in stories of our triumphs over these mythical beasts. Meanwhile, in Asia, dragons have always been revered, blessing civilization with their strength and wisdom. 

But here’s the magic of change: over the last 100 years, a remarkable transformation has taken place. We’ve bid farewell to the age-old narratives of slaying dragons, and instead, we’ve opened our hearts to befriend these magnificent creatures. 
No longer are dragons our foes; they’ve become our comrades-in-arms, helping us shape our shared destiny. Our children now revel in playful adventures with these lovable beings, much like the enchanting tale of “The Reluctant Dragon” by Kenneth Grahame. 
In this shift, we’ve even embraced the Ouroboros, a dragon snake that consumes itself, symbolizing the eternal cycle of life, death, and creation from destruction. 
The truth is, we no longer need to depict dragons as adversaries in our stories. Our centuries-long battle has concluded, but we’re still here, alive and vibrant, igniting the flames of curiosity and courage within us. 
In the words of Friedrich Nietzsche, “A man who fights dragons for too long becomes a dragon himself.”
