Today I shrunk to the size of a mouse. Flowers grew, giant bells nodding gently in the dappled sun. I plucked a bloom, a pink sweet thing, perfuming the air with the smell of honey and rose. I walked along the hollow walls, trailing petals in my wake. The grass opened up before me and every shadow called my name. I was la petite belle, I was Thumbalina escaped from her room. The world was large and strange before me, and I tiptoed through its rapturous glory. Pearls of water glistened on leaves the length of my body, and the ground sprang beneath my tiny feet. I jumped, I scurried, I flung myself out into the great beyond, and finally, fluttered to a stop beneath a twisted tree, as shapeless and infinite as a universe beyond my sight. Stay with me awhile, and I'll tell you all about it; the sight, the smells, the sounds, the rich tapestry of magic and living, and we'll both grow old together underneath a starlit sky.
