The Velveteen rabbit!! (I stopped obsessing about getting older and wrinklier!)

"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"

"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."

"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.

"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?"

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or 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, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your 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."

If I had a big garden, I would grow......

A Brazilian Coral Tree, a poinsettia, put in some hydrangeas, geraniums, daisys, a range of Australian natives, a herb garden, some cherry tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, corn (because corn is just so amazing when you grow it yourself and then eat it...!) plus a whole lot of stuff,

My absolute favorite movie (of the moment) is Waitress. I highly recommend it for anyone that's in or has been through an abusive relationship. It's sweet and funny and very, very hopeful. Of course, I'm awful at "favorites" because I can never seem to choose just one. On a different day, my answer could have been:

Slumdog Millionaire

Million Dollar Baby

A Christmas Story

Raise the Red Lantern

Schindler's List

Rear Window

The Shawshank Redemption

It's a Wonderful Life

Bringing Up Baby

Lost in Translation

Hotel Rwanda

And my guilty pleasure...13 Going on 30

If I were a super hero, and had the power of invisibility, I would go eveywhere and nowhere at once, I would spy on my daughter at school to see how she gets on, I would see what my cats do when I am not there, I would make sure my little brother isn't having sex yet, I would walk for hours knowing nobody could stop me, I would love to say that I would use my power for the greater good, but my world is so small that I would use it just for little things like this

My dream house is a cozy Arts & Crafts bungalow with a great big front porch in old "downtown," where I could sip a glass of wine on the porch swing with my friends on a beautiful summer evening and walk to the ice cream shop, library, and park with my kids.
