This guy needs a name before he heads off to Ceramic Showcase, May 2.
Any suggestions? His basket is full of stars, and one has fallen on his shoe. I don’t always know the source of these folks.
“All men have stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems… But all these stars are silent. You-You alone will have stars as no one else has them… In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night..You, only you, will have stars that can laugh! And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me… You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure… It will be as if, in place of the stars, I had given you a great number of little bells that knew how to laugh” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
So, perhaps a good name is Antoine.
Thank you Steve, that is wonderful! He even looks a bit like the illustrations in my Little Prince copy!
He has a title, if not exactly a name. Many wonderful ideas, but I was most moved by Steve’s association to The Little Prince, and loved revisiting that magical story. I’m calling this piece “You-only you- will have stars that can laugh”
