These magic stories are simply the fruit of Witch Hazel's morbid imagination... but they also contain some precious truths, indeed. Witch Hazel, (which is myself... you know... sometimes I like to speak in 3rd person...) wrote them mostly to enjoy herself and  kill time during boring "collegi dei docenti" (teachers' school meetings). But Witchy also knows that when you use stories or metaphors to illustrate some basic truths nobody can accuse you of being boring or self-assuming. On the contrary, everybody loves listening to tales, whatever age they are, especially if the ingredients are: magic, humour and fantasy. So, turn off the TV and listen to Witchy's fairy tales..., Scores:

Kids' drawings: The day when Sunflower taught Witchy about the hidden meanings of children's doodles...

Flexible tale: The story narrates the adventurous events in the life of an unlucky beautiful girl who finally, as it happens in fairy tales, finds her true love and lives a long happy life with him. But it is also a metaphor on the necessity of acquiring the right dose of flexibility, both as teachers and human beings, as NLP predicates.
