Nicolette is a native San Diegan with a passion for the world of make-believe. She still lives in her imagination, but in reality she resides in San Diego with her husband, children, a couple cats, and an old dog.
She loves reading, attempting arts and crafts, and cooking. Nicolette also writes books about women who wield magic, including The Priestess and the Dragon :. A unique read that makes me want to read more. As for Cinders, all the girl has to do is dress up nice to deserve the prince. Oh, and just a minute, why is the prince such a prize anyway? And then it hit me, the hidden story. So let me tell you my take on Cinderella, the one that might feature on Oprah. A woman is widowed and left penniless with two daughters to raise.
In a society where marriage is the principal career open to women, she needs a new husband, hopefully one with money. Unfortunately, no sooner does she find a new husband than he goes and dies too.
The story continues – The Antichrist seizes power!
He leaves her having to manage his disordered finances and debts. The next snag comes in the shape of her step-daughter who is far too pretty. How is she supposed to find suiters for her own daughters when Cinders steals all the attention. Any spare money will have to go on beauty treatments, expensive clothes, and health farms. She needs to save money and get the competition out of the way.
Laying off some staff and moving her step-daughter into the kitchen achieves both objectives. And when the invitation to the royal ball comes … well, what would anyone in her place do? This is what the real world is like. Tolkien says, evil is more often committed by ordinary people trying to survive, to compete. Now we come to Cinderella herself. When a stranger claiming magic powers turns up with an offer of new clothes that only last till midnight, and she converts a bunch of rats and a pumpkin into a crystal carriage, what does Cinderella do?
Does she give in to doubts and fear? She does what every business guru tells us to do, she grabs the opportunity with both hands. She finds her courage and takes the risk. I think on reflection, Cinderella would make a fantastic educational story for children of both sexes.
Paradise Lost: The Poem
The thing about fantasy and fable is that it allows us to comment on reality much more easily than other kinds of fiction. By elevating the question into architypes and imaginary characters, we can bring up questions of good vs evil and lay out our conclusions in a way that would seem crass in ordinary fiction. Pinocchio does it so much better. The wooden toy, once complete, becomes a boy.
THE REALITY SHIFT Series
He has feelings, makes mistakes and wants to go out and explore the world. He tells lies and learns about consequences. Author Stella Night explains Pinocchio in terms of romantic relationships. It was an idea that I had because I had watched my friend desperately try to save her marriage by constantly trying to change her husband, making him go to courses, yoga, and various things to make their relationship better. In the end, she gave up. Then her husband sorted himself out on his own and returned to her becoming an amazing husband.
Who would you want to marry out of George Clooney, astronomer Brian Cox. My answer is, none! Would I be happy in a mansion in Malibu, or a tax haven island for the super-rich? Can I live on a farm in the Prairies?

Once I started to think about it, I realized how our classic fairy tales can in fact say a lot about real life. Then she gives up everything for him, her world, her family, her way of life, even her voice which was the one thing he liked about her. And for what? The problem when women — and most of us were raised thinking that success in love would be our greatest aim — when women fall in love, they can sometimes build up the man into what they hope he could be.
And in our effort to be with him we give up our independence, the very thing that made us attractive to him in the first place. We become needy and vulnerable. The girl, full of youthful romantic dreams, is horrified that her father has arranged a marriage with a local merchant.
In her eyes he is a beast. But gradually, with patience and kindness, she begins to see how hard he works to provide a good life for them, she grows out of her youthful fantasies and learns to appreciate having a good home and the respect of the community. Her husband becomes a prince in her eyes. I focused on choices. We set out in a certain direction and sometimes we need to stop and think about what we really want — not what anyone else wants for us — and then change direction to follow ourselves.
I think we all need to stop every so often and ask, what is my path, where am going and is it still where I need to be. When Rose Amberly was little, she pestered her mother for stories every night and morning and afternoon.
