Fairy tails, legend, magical and mystical creatures; all these wonders offer us some truths along with their fantasy.  Stories of our values, our humanness, our wishes and our fears.

To me, the stories of  dragons and unicorns are documents of extinction.   They tell us the story of how humans have chased, killed, controlled, feared or encroached on creatures environments so much that they became rarer and rarer until they disappeared.  They tell us the story of how we chased away the bigness that scared us till we could tell our selves that we were bigger than it all.

This is my mother standing in the buzz of  New York wearing her unicorn scarf by Katrin Leblond.

The city that’s magic is now it’s neon lights.

Where did all the stars go?

You cannot see them at all for all the city lights.

What does that mean?

One day, we will tell our children fairy tails about how in another time and another world the sky at night was a dark velvet cloak and it was covered in bright twinkling sparks of light that whispered to children that could see them that the universe was vast and never ending and they were part of it all.

Your life is your most powerful art.

See you at the boutique.
