Historical & Nostalgic Update ...

Prince Charming, Snow White, 1937

News but, historical, nostalgic 

and 375 miles of the Grimms 

brothers, "root" of tales. 

Towns that preserved their 
medieval heritage, awaken two hundred years
after two Grimm brothers,
both long ago librarians who
preserved their history, in Fairy Tales identifying the moral
codes and lessons
of their time from the unique people around them and others. 

One example is: 

"The Devil aka The Giant with The Three Golden Hairs" is noted to have been influenced by J. R. R. Tolkien's The Tale of Beren and Lúthien, in which the elf-king Thingol sets an impossible task for his daughter's mortal suitor: to obtain one of the three Silmarils from the Iron Crown of Morgoth.

The Grimm's tale can be found here: and while I have yet to find the picture; numerous sources say that Philipp Grot Johann's, illustration of the Devil - is that the devil is pictured reading a newspaper which, on closer examination, is a stock market letter.  Very easy to re-write and attribute to the bankers of our time as shown in too big to fail and even 1929  a place that bankers should have learned their lesson...

So look around you. You never know what might be 
unraveling right now and the part you'll play in 
tomorrow's fairy tale ... will you be remembered as assertive
or passive - good or bad - the hero or heroine? 

Right now, You, Define You in Real-Time ... 

Make it Count

See You Soon
