Once Upon A Time
Long, long ago, it all started in my bedroom
when I realized that I would never have a sister or a brother to play with. So I learned to pretend and to create a world of my own.
Then when I went to school and learned how to read, I knew what I wanted to do.
I wanted to go to Paris
study hard and learn how to speak French
and fashion books of my own.
I have accomplished my first two goals, and the literary endeavor is in process. But in the mean time, I have taken my childhood pains and passions
and as an adult, I have unabashedly entered through the chimerical world of creativity

at the risk of being outlandishly "different" to colossal proportions. To my surprise however, I have been breathlessly taken back
by the light shining through the portal from the other side of my dreams.
Call me an idealist or a romantic
but I prefer to be thought of as a visionary with a purpose to fulfill my idea of LIVING. So if you would be so daring dear reader, as to put on your hat
daintily lift up your skirt
and step into the carriage
to embark on a voyage to Marie Antoinette's Hameau at Versailles
after which I have patterned my own reality at Rabbit Hill.
I used to dream of how Marie's harp strings might have vibrated in the quiet air of the French countryside
but now, I make my own music every night
and fill the air of the garden of Clair de Lune with the gentle sounds of my harp.
During quiet moments on the weekend, I wander and wonder what is just around the corner
for me to examine, explore and pattern my home after the elegant luxury of the humble countryside of Versailles.
So while you are waiting for me to take some decent photographs of where I LIVE, take a seat
relax and dream
about the possibilities waiting for you!
