Fascinating Tales

Cinderella had the pumpkin. Snow White, the sensational seven. And where would Pippi be without Mr. Nilsson?

Stories spin the world. Morals, madness and magic. Impossible to imagine days without "have you heard," "listen to this" -- or everyone's favorite: "once upon a time."

So, what's yours?

Miguel, the gardener, has a nephew with a blue-and-green-and-yellow bedroom ceiling fan. The retired lady who cruises around the block in faded overalls whispers to dogs. And the old man in the tiny house moseys with his walker at least three times a day.

Share your daily slices. They're what everyone else wakes up for.
