Mini passions....

 (but first)

I wish to invite you to a wonderful musical treat:


Bernie  performs at 8 PM Eastern Standard time, most nights.
If he is not on, try the next night.

              ******************************






DEDICATED TO THE MSAT DOLL MINI GROUP
*

Bernie and me-- at my own (very much in need of tuning) piano
The song below was performed on a 1956 Steinway Grand
Piano (which is always kept in tune)

TELL ME A STORY, I'LL MAKE A DOLL

I always love combining art forms. Stories are rich with creative imagination, and have been  an important art form for centuries...perhaps ever since humans had language. Creating dolls has also been a tradition from the dawn of history.
Creating a doll that fits a story is a wonderful endeavor, which my miniature doll group is undertaking. 

The Song


The Instrumental




LYRICS
Tell me a story, a fanciful story,
A wonderful, long ago, fairy tale story.
I'll make a doll, a hero who is bold...
And a maiden or a knave,
In the tale that is told.
Please tell me a story,
A reality story..
A work of fiction that is true to life.
I'll create a small doll, that fits the tale...
In a scene , made to scale.
Our mini group loves to make dolls small.
Representing so many themes.
And now, in twenty twelve
Our focus will be.... on narratives..
They are part of our dreams.
So.. tell me a story, any good story..
A fireside, warm and cuddly, special story..
I'll make a doll that tells the tale too.
It's a great group project our members can do.
