“You think fairy tales are only for girls? Here’s a hint - ask yourself who wrote them. I assure you, it wasn’t just the women. It’s the great male fantasy - all it takes is one dance to know that she’s the one. All it takes is the sound of her song from the tower, or a look at her sleeping face. And right away you know - this is the girl in your head, sleeping or dancing or singing in front of you. Yes, girls want their princes, but boys want their princesses just as much. And they don’t want a very long courtship. They want to know immediately.”—
- David Levithan and Rachel Cohn.
Last night I tweeted “Why are there no fairy tales with the prince being rescued?” and today I found the answer.
“I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.”—Shana Abé (via andswimgood)
“Aurora” is dedicated to those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. I recorded this song in London in the days following the tragedy as a heartfelt tribute to the victims and their families. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Aurora Victim Relief organization. The track is available on iTunes and you can download and donate here.
I miss strolling through the parks after work to wind up either beneath the fireworks in Magic Kingdom or at Fantasmic in Hollywood Studios.
I CAN’T WAIT TO EAT AT EARL OF SANDWICH IN DOWNTOWN DISNEY.
I’m going to cry when I go to Disney in September with my family.
I’m actually going to bawl my freaking eyes out and I won’t even feel ashamed. Not one bit. Because that place is home to me.
Well, one of them. Or, rather, it was my home, and I learned and grew from so much there.
I can’t wait to cry tears of joy to be back.
I can’t wait to smell the candy and popcorn immediately upon entering through the gates onto Main Street.
Most importantly, I can’t wait to be happy naturally no matter what because that’s what that place does to me. I never got sick of Disney in the 6 months I was there because it was actually some sort of “magic” that changed my spirits and perspective.
