Reading it allows me to feel how much I do still get caught in a picture of trying to be beauty-full and to come back and feel that no trying is required and that I am already this from within, thank you.
I love the marriage of the words and graphics, and the care and precision that you have put to the pages. I read it at bedtime a couple of nights ago, snuggled up under my doona and allowing time with each page to take in the loving details with which you have both expressed. The book encourages this, and it is lovely that it does not read in a way that takes you to an 'end point', that each page is equally full and allows you to pause and ponder and read at your own pace.
I also love how all of the characters feel equal in the joy they express and radiate from their hearts - it is rare, and perhaps the first time for me that I have read a book that does not have lead characters that are weighted with more importance than others. There have been many other moments of wonder and delight and I look forward to many more future reads and enjoying what you have presented for us all. With much love and appreciation.
