A (short) Fairy Tale

Once upon a time there was a princess who lived with her prince in a nice little home in the big city. They worked hard together; making their house a home and building a small garden. After a while the prince & princess yearned for their own kingdom; someplace they could feel free and fend for themselves. The prince had dreams of chickens and goats; the princess of creating something out of nothing.

As time plodded on, their enemy (of the insidious kind), watched and waited. The prince and princess were getting more worried by the day so they set off in search of a kingdom close by, somewhere to call their own. Unfortunately everywhere they looked it was either too cold, too dry, too barren or just plain too expensive.

One day the princess said to her prince “Why don’t we try Nova Scotia?” “It might just be the perfect place for people like you and me”.

So here and now they start their journey. Their house has been sold,and soon they will set out in their carriage for a magical place in the country where the chickens lay golden eggs and the goats spin flax into….wait a minute that’s another story..
