The letter U is not an easy letter to work with. Then it hit me...kind of hurt too. Unicorns. Who doesn't love these mythical majesties. They are elusive, graceful, and have healing powers in their horns. Did you know that? I didn't. I learned that from wikipedia on the internetz so it must be true.
Growing up one of my favorite movies was The Last Unicorn. A story about a lone unicorn who learns she is the last of her kind. She doesn't believe it to be so she sets off on an adventure to find her friends.
I tape recorded this movie. That's right, tape recorded it. Because we didn't have a VCR...yet. So I LISTENED to my movie over and over. I still remember some of its dialogue. Another favorite tale of the unicorn is told in a poem by one of my very favorite poets as a kid, Shel Silverstein: The Unicorn. It totally explains it all!
What little girl doesn't fall in love with these beautiful creatures. Real or imagined, the unicorn is an amazing and magnificent creature.
