The Prince is sweet, but an idiot
Small feet save the day

In Every Culture, Stories of Damsels in Distress Are a Tradition Old As Time.

But Sometimes, the Act of Rescuing Another May be the One thing that Opens Your Heart and Renews Your Spirit

And the Person Whom You Believe needs Your Help and Attention the Most,

Damsel in Distress by Backlit Stranger

May Be the Very Same One who Offers You ~

the Grace and Purpose to Continue on your Journey With Love and Gratitude.


The film you are about to see is about a similar moment of discovery between two much younger people. Let it Open your heart to the possibilities of life ~ even when you may perceive them to be limited.

For More Haiku My Heart Go to Recuerda mi Corazon. You will be glad you did.


  1. Awe, that was so sweet! Wish I had some of that magic.

    Have a wonderful week.


  2. That was a beautiful video. What comes to my mind immediately is that we might never know or realize who is the saving grace of our lives. As for the Damsels, I'm wondering if I know any that are in distress. They all seem to be saving me, especially the beautiful ones.


  3. Couldn't open the video ...but then the haiku is beautiful... AND LOVED THE PAINTING TOO..Very Good....enjoyed it..

  4. oh noelle,
    a pure gift. so much so my words seem too heavy for the light and love i wish to convey to you.
    you fill my cup each and every day.
    i hope every heart breathes in this generosity, so much so that they, being in fulfillment, easily fill the cups of those whose lives they touch with believing.

  5. so sweet....a true knight


  6. Joe,
    You have been my saving grace in ways that you may never know. I am thankful for your presence in my life every day.
    Peace and Love,

  7. Your posts are always so lovely and inspirational. Thank you, Noelle.

    Dear, Dear Noelle~ How wonderful it is to visit you! Your insights, attention to visual details, connections made in unique ways... The lavender header and sidebars are gorgeous! But then, all your changes have been beautiful! I was glad to see a Cinderella brave enough to go it on her own, and yet here is a couple who have realized they are as one together... My sister and I used to play Treasure Hunt; the video reminded me of that. So sweet! The reciprocity received and accepted. Creative, imaginative, artistic: this is you, Noelle. Love ☺

  9. I have small feet too, but
    don't allow this to make you go jumping to any hasty conclusions.
    I love this post, and the haiku. Thanks for sharing.

    All the best, Boonie

    very sweet and Good work

    I wish you a happy day

  11. Thank you Tamer and thank you for stopping in to visit. You have a wonderful day as well.

  12. How truly touching this post is, Noelle. And then you end it with such an enchanting film. It's a keeper and I posted it to Facebook just so I WOULD always have it..

  13. You have posted some of my favorite artists--especially Waterhouse. For some reason the video is stalling but I've copied the embed code and I'll try again. Your readers obviously love it so I want to see it too.

  14. Why thank you so much. I am glad that the film spoke to you as well. Thanks for stopping in.

  15. Hi Fran,
    If you go straight to Vimeo you should be able to view it there. Not sure why it is stalling for you. So glad you liked the post.

  16. dear sweet noelle,
    may your day be heart warming.
    come...we are all in the garden,
    where a vision is waiting for you!
