Le Petit Prince.

In learning my love for The Little Prince, a new friend sent me this video, which he helped make years ago. The song's lyrics are about the prince whose home was on a planet, scarcely as large as a house, and a fox he made for a friend. It is sincerely darling, and I enjoyed watching it immensely.



While there are several lines I like, including, "You could count the flowers here, we've got no time for drinking beer," and, "Like a fox outside the sand, I tame your heart with a quiet hand," I think my favorite line comes from the chorus, "I won't forget to remember I know you," which I imagine is inspired from a line in the book: "It is a sad thing to forget a friend."

The fox is also very beautiful.

Thank you, Newt.

Betty, I am in love with it, and catch myself watching it over and over. I grin every time the fox first peaks her head out from behind the tree. I also feel like the prince looks like someone we would be friends with, or are already friends with, but I can't think of who...

It also reminds me that I want to be the little prince for Halloween, but never remember in time to do it well, so thus cannot do it.

If you went as the LP, I'd want to go as a tame fox.

K Pup, next Halloween can we please meet up, from wherever we are, and do that? And I just now remembered when I was a librarian, and you were mother earth, and the undergrad boys on the bus...

DEAL. I hope we remember. Because this might be the best buddies Halloween costume idea EVER. :)

And I had forgotten about that crazy bus ride. Heheh.
