Why I write and care so much about dragons?
Because they are universal.
You find them in almost every human culture. From ancient epics to modern fantasy books, you will find them everywhere, as symbols of lands, in songs and in visual art, in brand logos and more.
And because they are mythological, they can assume the most various roles, especially nowadays. They are not anymore only the evil to be defeated or gods to be venereated: they can be the companions of your life, the frontiers to a parallel world, heroes who sacrifice themselves putting an ending to their race, simple animals or civilized societies. There is no limit to how you can interpret them.
Dragons are a key to an amazing set of themes that only wait to be discussed about, and the most wonderful daydream of mankind. We may imagine to kill them in order to conquer glory; personally I prefer to imagine to fly with one of them while merging my spirit with it. They are both valid, and answer to different wishes. By myself, I will promote the last one. If we try to talk to dragons, to be in contact with them, maybe we can achieve something better than glory. We only need to try it. And to be in contact with them, all we have is stories.
