Fairy Tale for a Modern Woman

Today I was inspired by a blog post in the Hairpin to write my own "Fairy Tale for a Modern Woman." Here it is...

Once upon a time there was a woman who liked to learn. By middle age she was good at many, many things but none of these brought her the satisfaction she craved. The woman realized that a change was in order — her point-of-view was sitting cock-eyed in her head. So she shoved and twisted and man-handled that stubborn point-of-view until it was in a new and brave-faced shape. Then she saw the truth…happiness was inside her, it always had been, she just hadn’t noticed. After that, she lived happily…for the most part anyway.

The End.

For those who don't know me I'm an artist who writes, paints, and illustrates real and no-so-real things. One day, I hope to paint a picture of the ugly Queen and show the world that her heart is really quite lovely, she's just been stuck with an ugly mug.
