Favorite Quote:
"Remember your roots, but don't forget to grow into a tree."

'Once Upon A Time', Grandma said,

My soul sighed with anticipation;

'Once Upon A Time', the book read,

My thirst for stories, facing no diminution.


I crave the ink from the pages

Sitting at my escritoire;

"Once Upon A Time', a story begins anew

And I read on, heart filled with awe.


I turn the page;

The last words, just round the bend

But to me, it's a door to another beginning

And a road to another end.

The author's comments:

“Stories you read when you're the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you'll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.”
? Neil Gaiman, M Is for Magic
