Dressing Up

Many a wonder deep deep inside
A princess, a queen, who shall decide
A crown, a cape, and here I be
The magic of all deep within me
Stories I have listened to so very well
And here I am with myself to tell.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

  1. Lovely photo.....we can be anyone or go anywhere our imagination allows...I love this thought......:-) Hugs

  2. Hi Rosemarie-

    Alaura is SO full of 'dress-up' and make believe. It was magical to experience such glorious fantasy. She loves all the Princesses and is especially in awe of Snow White. Your image and poem reminded me of her innocent fairy tales - thank you
    Love Gail

  3. Bernie, and so know the joy and set your imagination to soar. A cost effective delight! Hugs included!

  4. Gail, That present Spirit is bubbling with joy. Ah, yes, Snow White... a Smile complete! A storybook of Hugs sent your way...

  5. this one makes me think of my boys, or even myself as a young lad...a piece of cloth became a cape transforming us into knights, pirates, dashing heroes, gave us super powers...thanks for reliving those moments with me today...

  6. Dearest Brian, As a mother of three grown sons, I implore your imagination ever to be present in this game of life you share with your sons. Fly, dig, fight all the demons and be freedom itself! Much much love to you dear friend.

  7. It is such a joy to watch children take a piece of clothing and bring it to life in their imagination. Imagination is the joys of childhood. This post brings back all the memories of childhood. Thank you!

  8. Choices, and when we keep those moments of wonder and imagination alive with passing years, we continue to define joy. Thank You and Hugs...

  9. Oh, the power of imagination that can transform anything into the desired. Thank you, Rose Marie.
