W is for Whimsy
As a child I believed in magic. I loved stories of different worlds where anything was possible and if it didn't happen in my world I was sure there was somewhere out there where it could. Pixar is known for adding a short with each of their feature films. for the movie Brave the short was La Luna. A beautiful story magic and delight. We watched this with my ever practical Grandmother once. Bless her heart she couldn't figure out what the purpose of the short was. How did THAT happen? and What is it ABOUT? she kept asking. I tried to explain it was just a bit of whimsy, just to be enjoyed for what it was. She was just confused. I'm so glad that when I open a book I can believe in magic, delight in the words and believe the impossible.
