Trollvinter or Moominland Midwinter

One of the things I got myself this year for my birthday are copies of all the Moomintroll books by Tove Jansson from Amazon.

The first one came yesterday - it was first published in Finland in 1957, the UK in 58 and the US in 1962.

I think there are 8 more that haven't shipped yet.

I cracked open Midwinter last night and suddenly realized how much they effected my life - I've found little bits of wisdom in the book that I have found myself using through out my life.

It's weird revisiting things like that.

Have you ever revisited things from your youth and found that they are still as influential to you as they had been when you were little?

humm you should go let your brain cool down *chuckle*

It's been years since I've read these books - maybe ten years or so... so I was a bit suprised when I ran across a line I had used on someone the other day.
