The True Magical Fairytale

Wow, I am so excited right now! I have always wanted to write a children’s story for all ages. And this week I did it. Since it is a story based on my own life journey, told in a true yet magical fairytale way, it feels good to finish it right in time for my 38th birthday.
So, today I give you this story as a birthday gift from me TO YOU. And, I wholeheartedly invite you to become part of this evolving creation as I’m seeing a published book and/or performance art event in our bright future…
Two ways you can add your unique Spark to this creative project:
1. After you finish listening to the story, I would love for you to share some words that bubble up in response to the story and post it in the comments below. Pleeeeeeeaaaaaase, pretty please. It would mean so much to me.
If prompts help, here are some questions I’m curious about:
- If you were asked to write a short testimonial/review for the back cover of this book, what would you say?
- What name would you give to Princess #3 after she goes through her transformation? (SPARK Princess of the Sky is not set in stone yet.)
- What aspect of the story reminds you of your own journey?
- If you were reading this story with a child, which part of the story would you most want to discuss together afterwards?
- What does this story inspire for you? New insight? New action?
2. My vision for this story is to evolve it into a collaborative creation—my words with your images. “Who me?”…”Yes, YOU!” The images that I am temporarily using are mostly borrowed from Pinterest with a few of my own splashed in. (You can visit http://www.pinterest.com/chilton0900/my-iconic-essence/ to find image sources and credits.) In the next evolution of this project, I would love for each page of this story to have a powerful expressive image from someone in our community. (You will of course be credited as the artist.)
So, listen to this story, noticing which parts resonate most with you. Close your eyes and imagine that particular part of the story as an image. Then, let your creativity have some fun creating that image. It could be a drawing, painting, photograph, collage, mask, puppet, sculpture, installation– anything that visually expresses that part of the story. As soon as it is created, take a photo of it and send it to me. (And perhaps you already have several images in your life’s collection that you could pull out and submit.)
I invite you to send in as many submissions as you desire to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will feel my way through which image is meant to land on each page once all submissions have been received. It will feel so good to create something together with you. So fun!
If this story inspires you to move forward on your own transformational journey…
I invite you to apply for your own “Remember Who You Are” Discovery Session.
