Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time...Oh, how those words conjure up tales of delight, romance and mystery. Who among us doesn't recall the beginning of Cinderella or Snow White? Those simple early tales led to more complicated stories of daring-do. We graduated to myths and legends--Paul Bunyan, Davy Crockett, Molly Pitcher, Paul Revere. As we matured, we explored far horizons, A Wrinkle in Time, Narnia, Hogwarts.

Now we're adults, seeking stories with depth and emotion, tales about men and women who gaze upon their inner souls, who grow and learn as they mature. We yearn for happy endings and sigh in contentment when the characters overcome obstacles and demonstrate their worthiness.

Once upon a time...that's the essence of good story-telling.




  1. I feel a thrill every time I hear, "Once upon a time..."

    They are really cοnvincing аnd can ԁefinitelу wοrk.
    Still, the рosts are very brief for staгters.
    Could you pleasе lengthеn them a little from nехt time?
    Thаnks for the post.

  3. I like Anonymous'comment because it means absolutely nothing with a touch of look at my website. As for once upon a time? I think that has been lost - certainly in ebooks - with the rush to lust.

  4. I am in fact pleased to read this webpage posts which contains tons of helpful data, thanks
    for providing such information.
