An amazing animator, isn't he..and I love the tenderness of little hedgehog, and the overbearing concern of the bear, magical appearances and disappearances in the fog-the exquisite white horse, the inexplicable elephant, and the giant tree! I have another, a much darker, more personal and autobiographical one that I'll post somewhere down the road. For today, a day of mass 'Occupy Wall Street' protests, this sweetness is what I need, and just enough enough.

This is absolutely a most wonderful way to start a day...believing that all creatures great and small, as the title goes, can get along...yes, man seems to forget that thought. Thank you Michelle and Jude for bringing me here this morning. Phonetically I understood enough of the Russian to really enjoy it even more so..beautiful. xxx Henrietta
