Still Beautiful

"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes don't see as well and you get loose in the 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" The Velveteen Rabbit....

    I wish you lived close--maybe I'm lucky and you will say you do--I bet I could sit all day and night and listen to your stories--your eyes are beautiful with many stories hidden in there. Your smile is beautiful
