There is a little bit of the child in all of us as even we age.
It is to that child, no matter your age, this story will appeal, with an edge to your eager,
yearning adult desires.
To fly amongst faeries, swim with whales, dance with wily cats
and climb towering giant bean stalks or kiss a mermaid, those are all fairy tales we each have grown up with and passed along to our children
as they will pass to their children
Witches, princes, pumpkins and crooked roads…
Where would we be without them?
Why would we want to be there, without them?
They shape our dreams, stir our wishes for starry nights,
And keep us company when we are alone with our thoughts.
This is dedicated to the child in us all that grew up
with adult appetites.
I would like to also dedicate this book to my friend,
Kathleen Grieve Mayer
1969 – 2017
Would that dreams and wishes could come true,
None of us would be missing you.
