as a child
I felt like an adult
as an adult
I feel like a child
It was during that vacation with Monkey
that I had the insight:
My life had become a desperate race
to maintain my house,
to pay a mortgage,
a race that was a superimposed structure
on what my life was truly meant to be,
a structure that was crushing
an essence that I was beginning
to have glimpses of.
I carried within
a magical world of healing,
healing I desperately needed ...
my stuffed animals
and great joy
"Bless you for how you expressed the magical and healing world of stuffed animals. I've never read words so completely beautiful and true. I know I was meant to have your book. Thank you. Your book has helped me in a profound and healing way. Much love to Monkey and the whole gang. With gratitude, Hope and (Teddy Bear) Parker"
