I´ll Tell You Something

I think you´ll understand. My boy is growing. And he doesn´t want to hold my hand. [I´m proud of him!]

My son and his colleagues are performing a parody of The Beatles for their English class. They are very excited about that and insisted on taking that photo. I  was their photographer. Their song is called I Want to Hold Your Head, as you can see for the photo bellow:

The Girl in the Tower

A flap of wings.
An open window.
A beautiful creature inside, waiting for the black bird, ready to go.

They have been flying together for a long time now.
Appreciating each other´s company and talking about things of their different worlds.
The witch is always cursing the princes who climb the girl´s prison. She never sees the only one who flies in.

One day he alighted on her windowsill and she invited him inside.
And that´s how the Raven-Prince met The Lady of the Tower.

Funny the way things are.
People only see what they want to.

A young woman locked in a tower.
A witch who thinks she owns the girl.
She breaks the girl´s heart, she even cuts her braids.

But she´ll never, ever, suspect Rapunzel has a hidden pair of wings.
