    Delighted that you saw it that way. I was thinking it was a bit on the dark side. Thanks for the visit,

    Oh, I found it sweet, as well. Sleeping and dreaming ~ rather wistful.

    Thanks for the great prompt!! 🙂

    Paula, don’t get me wrong, I love this piece of music, but the image reminded me of the centuries of women who were kept in ‘their’ place, only allowed to do and be what was expected of them, a sort of sleeping and dreaming existence, waiting on the ‘music’ that would allow them to move. And really glad you liked the prompt,
