|Read a Fairy Tale|
My house is full of books and by full, I mean I have over a thousand books. The majority of my books are three kinds. First, I have cookbooks from the 1800's to present day. I am particularly fond of handwritten notes offering prayers, reflections, prices,remedies and suggestions in the margins of those books written by women a century ago.
The second large group of my books is, of course, metaphysical,spiritual, scientific books. I have books from astrology to zen. You name the topic...I probably have a book or two on it.
Last, but not least, is my collection of fairy tales from around the world. I have loved fairy tales since I was a child and love them just as much today . My only disappointment with them is that almost always it was the eldest child that was mean,ugly and sinful...I, alas, was the eldest in my large family. I vow to write a story someday that redeems that older sister and makes her the heroine.
So, this month on "read a fairy tale day", find a wonderful old tale, preferably from an old and dusty child's book and escape into a world of imagination.
