Many years ago a friend gave me a copy of “The Little Prince”… and underlined these words…
“I am looking for friends. What does that mean — tame?”
“It is an act too often neglected,” said the fox. “It means to establish ties.”
“To establish ties?”
“Just that,” said the fox. “To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world….”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
…and with each passing year these words are more and more powerful to me! This is why I love and am so very grateful that David Caudle and his most powerful and moving story Bitsy and Raff have magically found their way to me… So today, and perhaps all the days to come I shall be so humbly grateful.
Also, we wish to bestow one thousand and one prince and princess froggy kisses onto PETER O’ KUHN!! FOR HIS MOST GENEROUS LOVELY CONTRIBUTION/ORDER of First Edition Signed Copy of Bitsy and Raff!!! Although, we have reached our goal there is still so much more work to be done as we are finding out everyday! SO PLEASE, SPREAD THE GOOD CHEER OF BITSY AND RAFF’S O’ SO IMPORTANT MESSAGE OF LOVE, AND THE MAGIC OF FRIENDSHIP! AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, WE CAN ALL MAKE THIS WORLD, JUST A LITTLE BIT KINDER!
