Into the Woods

- by Mary Yates

This week's theme: Fairy Tales

They are stories we are told as a child. They are stories that often fascinate us as adults. In fairy tales live menace, hope, spells, beauty, horror, love, treachery, good and evil and happily ever after. Blended together they create a heady mix that keeps us coming back year after year and generation after generation.

-Melissa Morton
