  •  Fairy tales have always fascinated me. I loved reading them as a child. I “became” Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty and Little Red Riding Hood. Rapunzel was more difficult, since my hair was neither yards long nor shining with platinum beauty. There were wicked stepsisters who plagued my life...individuals who blocked my path with boulders of alienation, lack of acceptance heaped with ridicule. It was easy to see how fairy tales would be an impelling force, a call to what is beyond our immediate vision.

     I think we all have the opportunity to attend potluck or covered dish dinners. You know what I’m talking about…an event where everyone brings a dish to share. But, are you sharing more than the food?

     “Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen,”Willa Cather, My Antonia.

     

    Winter. Winter. Winter. On and on. And it probably won’t even snow here where I am. I have to admit that even though it is cold and nippy for this child of summer, our southern winters always include some beautiful, sparkling days. And the big trees don’t seem to mind winter too much.
