This week’s fairy tale was a very short story about a snail and a rose tree. The basic premise of the story is that the snail makes a decision to stay inside his house instead of giving himself to the world. The snail believes that is what the rose tree/bush does when it opens up and blossoms. It gives a part of itself to the outside world to enjoy. The snail wants to curl up and hide itself from the world. Don’t we all, sometimes?
