Old Man Mushroom Saves Russian Cinderella

I am grateful to dear Renard of https://renardsworld.wordpress.com, the gracious host to my funky creations. Enjoy, Beautiful People!

Renard's World

The first known Cinderella was called Rhodopis, lived around 7th century BCE, and transitioned from slavery to royalty by marrying the King of Egypt. I doubt that she had either little glass slippers or a fairy godmother. Making her way into the world’s culture, she has acquired both, as well as a despotic stepmother and an obnoxious step-sister or two, in Renaissance Italy. Moving on to France and Germany, she finally met her prince in fairy tales by Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm.

  3. IT seems that many cultures have their own version of the story, even in Japan and parts of Africa. The version you tell sounds complicated and wonderful, rather like the people of Russia themselves.

    While i am not a huge fan of mushrooms, my Sweetie is, so i think he will like this.

    1. As I was researching for the story, I have found both the Japanese version and the African one, but unfortunately, no musical clips. Dear Renard allows only one image for guest posts; the rest of entertainment has to be in videos.
      I am so glad you like the post, dear Mimi, and I hope your other half likes mushrooms the Russian way.

    1. They are so lucky, dear Gail! Here I can only forage for wild trash on the beach – mostly plastic and styrofoam,

      3. I understand. When we stay in Hawaii, no plastic bags are allowed. I take eco-friendly totes to reuse. Straws are stainless steel, provided by the restaurants. 🌴🌊
