Once upon a time...For Sunday Scribbling


Crab Art....Whitsunday Islands AUS

That is the prompt....Faerie tales....go anywhere with it. Ok.

I suppose the root question..is do you believe in magic? Are you ruled by heart or head? Do you really believe anything is possible? Do you believe in good over evil...? Do you believe in the rhyme and reason of an elegant universe? Do you believe in hope against hope, and love for sake of love?

For if you do believe, in an instant, without thought or reservation, then, I proclaim it so. It can all be a fairy tale. But if you hesitate, if you entertain the gnawing bore of doubt, well, you are lost to the unbelievers, and then fairy tales, fairy tales are just for children.



Still, if your head is right, and your toes are pointed down the path, then it could all be true. All could be needed. All could be treasured as twists in the plot line. For if it were true, all being all, there would be no need for happily ever afters...because with your head right and your toes pointed down the path, then every step..is just one more step, towards home.

I think the poster Mulder always had in his office sums it up: I want to believe. Not in faeries, necessarily, but in stuff outside the realm of the explainable, in hope against all odds. The problem is, one side of my family is strong with the logical side of the force (very scientific minded), and it's constantly warring with the starry eyed artist part of me (there's a bit of insanity that runs through both sides of my family, too).

i'm glad you were thinking of the princess and the pea.
reading the princess and the pea to my boys, still makes me weep (or well up at least).
it's not matter of whether you want to believe or not.
it's whether you feel it with every sensitive cell in your body.
i just do. x

THIS was gorgeous! Beautiful merging with words and images...and I needed to read those words today.

Thank you.
