Once Upon a Time

by oneobserving


Walking upon this path through the woods seemed serene and safe at the time. Only in reproduction did the scene reveal its rather sinister elements – the pronged branches at right projecting ominously toward unsuspecting passersby like the gaping jaws of a beast about to snatch the heroine in a folk tale. Perhaps I had a lucky escape. I take comfort, and courage, from knowing that fairy tales have happy endings. Usually.
