Journey with us in this well known tale that reaches back over many centuries to teach us about Tradition and Change. We watch Ella navigate the difficulty of becoming and then being a woman as an individual, in a complicated family situation, and as a member of the community while society is in flux. Do we have something to learn from her while also being entertained by her story? The story of Cinderella helps us understand how to deal with times of transition and change. We have tender feelings for and deeply held memories of the past, but the present is very real and can often be abrupt. It is NOW. If we honor and bring forward what is best from the traditions of the past, the memories we cherish can operate as a sort of magical solution to help ease the rude intrusion of change and the unfamiliar nature of the present newness, blending what is good from both past and present to create our best future. Ella is an exemplary example as she longs for and even mourns her past, but also faces her very real present, however unpleasant, with poise and ingenuity, forging a bright future.
