Once Upon a Time... A Journey

Once upon a time…

Oh, how long it’s been since I penned those words.

Magic and mystery,


a story just waiting to happen.


The tale unfolds, and the characters take form.

Who are they?

What will they do?

What will they learn?

Through the pages, a tapestry is woven.

One line intertwined with many,

one life pulling others together.


Then comes the trial.

The thorny path, the twisted road.

A broken heart, a shattered life.

Why? How?

Some move forward, some stay behind.

The tapestry takes on a new color.


In the end, I write the long-awaited words. “And they all lived happily ever after.”

It wasn’t easy to get there,

but those who wanted,

those who waited,

those who tried,

Made it.
