Evil Queen

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”

Among all Disney’s fairy tales, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is probably the story that stuck with me the most. I remember my mother reading this to me every night when I was about 5.  The Evil Queen’s line stuck like a last song syndrome. It’s the sole sentence in the Disney universe I know by heart, which, up to this day, I still speak in front of the mirror.

You poor unfortunate soul,
Go ahead!
Make your choice!”


Ursula the Sea Witch teaches us the value of contentment and accountability with your choices. Ariel wasn’t contented of what she had; in fact, she had everything already! But no, she said “I want more”. So she went on and made the choice to sacrifice her voice, her family, her life under the sea and be with the man she think she loves. The End.
