Day 14: Little Red Riding Hood (with A Magician's Hat).


Role-play fun in the woods with the family.

In our version of Rotkäppchen (why does English need four words to translate this?), the girl and the wolf are the best of friends. Grandma doesn't get eaten. And the mother is sneaky and eats the entire cake herself. (He's really rather tame, the wolf. He said to me, yesterday, that he must love me a lot, as is evidenced by the fact that he runs around the woods wearing a tunic from Mecca and a mask.) Thank You Mr. Wolf.


These awesome leather masks were made by this talented young man. Aren't they fabulous? His etsy shop is opening soon. :)

Thank you, Isa (love your name)- I have to return the compliment; your photographs are true magic. I used to love words, the music of them (still do), but lately the power of capturing and telling stories through images has really dawned on me. Your story is a beautiful story of...love. Thank YOU.
