Thank you for the dream you sent me

This is one of my favorite correspondences gleaned from the reliably fascinating blog Letters of Note. A young fan sent Mr. Dahl a small bottle with paint and glitter swirling inside– a bottled dream as described in his book, The BFG.

Roald Dahl Letter

Perhaps it’s because I’m a newly indoctrinated softy, now that I’m a mom – I can see my own 4-year-old wrapped up in this dream. Maybe it’s my looming 41st birthday; whatever the case may be this note is worth a pause. A special thank you to Adrienne Crezo.
