“Mermaid's Tale”


Description from Mary Ellen Parker: Yes ,this IS about Halloween!

My pick is inspired by misty memory of a very special Halloween costume.
It's about a little girl who wanted to be the "Little Mermaid".
The year the Disney movie came out,almost every little girl wanted to be Ariel!
My little girl REALLY wanted to !
I couldn't afford the outfit from the Disney store.
But,I managed to craft a fairly good likeness !
That costume remained a favorite memory .
My little girl became a big girl. But,she still wanted to be the little mermaid !
She went on to get an advanced scuba certification and a biology degree ! She is pursuing a career caring for marine mammals!

Halloween is a night about sweet, sugary spookiness.
It might also be a night to remind us ,we can be whatever our hearts desire...for one night or maybe for a lifetime!
m.e. :)
