Parker's Stocking..........Shepherd's Bush

For many the year's first snow is a major event and brings out the child in everyone including adults.

Cathedral Woods Goddess..............Mirabila

"She lives in the densely wooded forest.
The cathedral ceilings are lacy pine trees.
Her carpets are woven with moss, sage and ivy.
The droplets from clean rain make up crystal
chandeliers knitted together by spider webs. The lightning bugs light her path down the hallways.
It is a fine castle for this wild Queen who is
sometimes seen wandering its corridors at dusk.
The euphoric cricket opera plays on all night."
