....said the Skin Horse to the Velveteen Rabbit

Friday, March 01, 2013

You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't often happen to people who break easily, have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, your eyes drop out and you get loose joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.

This is dedicated to my dear friend Annie who I bet has a copy of this book that she treasures just as I do mine.

Love you Annie.
