Geneva Encore

Geneva Again: Just a photo diary and random thoughts from my 2nd summer in Geneva.
My tree! I did a gold and silver theme this year. Can’t believe it’s almost advent season again. I guess I should end this blog since we are well beyond the summer but I am undecided…still have lots of photos to share.  We’ll see.

"What is Real?" asked the Velveteen Rabbit one day…
"It doesn’t happen all at once," said the Skin Horse.  "You become.  It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept.  Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand… once you are Real you can’t become unreal again. It lasts for always.”
