Authenticity and The Velveteen Rabbit
A charming and inspiring Youtube snippet from The Velveteen Rabbit, by Margery Williams Bianco, illustrated with watercolors, read by Meryl Streep, with music by George Winston: “he wished he could become real without these uncomfortable things happening to him.”
A classic story–about love and authenticity and a little toy rabbit becoming real, “For a long time he lived in the toy cupboard….”
I’m guessing the author intended this story to be about love mainly–and the way appearances cease to matter. I think it also speaks strongly to anyone who ever lived in a psychic cupboard.
