Quote of the Weekend 

 “The Last Unicorn: Classic Edition” by Peter S. Beagle –

“Things must happen when it is time for them to happen. Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophecies may not be left to rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.””

Quote of the Weekend 

“The Last Unicorn: Classic Edition” by Peter S. Beagle –

““You were the one who taught me,” he said. “I never looked at you without seeing the sweetness of the way the world goes together, or without sorrow for its spoiling. I became a hero to serve you, and all that is like you. Also to find some way of starting a conversation.””

These both made me laugh:

“Well, if they hadn’t he couldn’t have grown up to be a prince. Haven’t you ever been in a fairy tale before?”

“As a hero, he understood weeping women and knew how to make them stop crying-generally you killed something…”

Happy Birthday Joshua

Happy birthday Joshua! You are such a bright and fun little boy! I love your already growing geekiness shown in your love of Planes, Dragons, and Star Wars. I love how excited you get and how serious you are about them. I also love your cuddly side and how willing you are to crawl up in my lap and just sit at times. 

I love you and I’m so glad you were born!

Quote of the Weekend

“We are not always what we seem, and hardly ever what we dream. Still I have read, or heard it sung, that unicorns when time was young, could tell the difference ‘twixt the two–the false shining and the true, the lips’ laugh and the heart’s rue.” – The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle
