Twice Upon a December...

She looked under the tinseled 

Norway Spruce.

As a child

she imagined herself

shrinking even smaller than she was

escaping in a Christmas ornament

anita pelayo rivera les dames d'abord

and landing

in a 

land of perfect happiness.

But now as an adult

she has learned that

she can expand beyond 

her size

via tumblr

right where she's standing

and confidently stride

instead of hide

to discover all the happiness 

the world needs.

Twice upon a time...

It's great to have 


give a second chance.

Oh Anita -- talk about matching the perfect music to the perfect words and images. I love every single thing about this post. Every note of music, every image, every thought behind your poem. And yes, to be bigger than you ever thought you could be -- oh, yes!

Thanks for visiting the blog. Blogger stopped sending me comments and I'm behind on answering people but you know I love it when you come by! Have a lovely Thanksgiving break.

^.^ said...

Lovely post, friend C … but (again) no video for me … Wonder why that is … Do you put in the whole long link into blogger Hotmail? Just asking, because that's how it works for me, and Dutchess. Just sayin ... Much love, cat.

Art and Sand said...

It's always a treat to see a new post from Castles Crowns and Cottages in my blog roll.

Beautiful my dear.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving.

Rhonda said...

Ooh, that music is so perfect! Love your words and images, especially how they merge into a beautiful moment. xxoo Rhonda

Dewena said...

Truly heart-poundingly magnificent, Anita! I'm just going to sit here and listen and watch and read over and over. Stride on, we'll follow!


tammy j said...

like Deborah Kerr in Affair to Remember... beauty always makes me cry.
and tears are streaming now.
your words and the music are mere perfection. thank you!

Red Rose Alley said...

I am always filled with wonder when I see your photos, Anita. That miniature stage coach hehehe. I can just see you as a child looking at it and dreaming of being inside. That is the cutest ornament. And that cottage looks just like a Christmas cottage covered in snow. Yes, second chances are wonderful in life, and how blessed we are to be given even more chances than that. Happy Thanksgiving to you, my special friend. I'm thankful for all the love you've given me through the years and just for being YOU.


Barbara said...

I love everything about this dear Anita. The words and music flow from the page and make me smile. Beautiful! Perfect!
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and the happiest of New Years. xx

Michelle May-The Raspberry Rabbits said...

Troebadoer said...

Dear Anita,

Thanks to your images, words, and music
we see a glimpse of the beauty
hidden in this complicated world.

I wish you nice Christmas days ...


Tu nous donnes,
quand la nuit est trop sombre,
la lumière de tes étoiles,
l'espoir d’une aube rayonnante,
l’extase de tes rêves...

Draffin Bears said...

Beautiful post dear Anita and thanks for sharing.
So lovely to see such a sweet post from you and loved the thought of you imagining you are riding in the little stagecoach.

Enjoy your thanksgiving break.

Red Rose Alley said...

I had to come over and see this ornament again. That is the cutest little thing, I want one! I know what you mean about imagining as a child. My mom would buy me colored construction paper from time to time, and I would make all sorts of things with markers, glue, beads, and glitter! I hope you are having a nice Thanksgiving, Anita. I just had a piece of pumpkin pie. : ) ~Sheri

Mapi said...

Ann said...
