The Little Prince

Here comes a very special card to me, that i received as an official just last week...speaking of mail, i have received NOTHING this week, and Wednesday has ended...

DE-470112

I think that as a character, the Little Prince has won the hearts of many, mine included. My first encounter with him was back in 4th grade primary school when we had to read the book....and while reading it, i was having all question and exclamation marks banging over my head, wondering, what the hell this crap is...if you had read the book, you will know why it seemed like crap for a 10 year old....i still dont know why they had put it on the list of books to be read at 4th grade....its not a book for 10 year olds, even though its main character is a child himself...you cant really figure out the core of the book if you are 10 years old, unless you are some prodigy child who has figured out the philosophy of life....
Anyways, years later i watched the movie, and by the recommendation of a friend, read the book again....i was honestly skeptical, due to my first experience with it...but this friend was my bf back then actually, so you know, i *had to* read it in order to have the basis of a *smart talk* afterwards and impress him...thats a foolish women's thinking and approach to stuff when men come in question....well, i dont know if any smart talk developed, but i know that i fell in love with the book and the Little Prince and was just genuinely touched in general. The book just had all those life-stuff in some simplified way explained, and yet, you could just identify yourself with it....it was shocking in a way to realize what a great book i almost had missed due to my first bad experience with it (so yeah, you should learn from your experiences, but that doesnt mean you should ban things/people from your life just coz the *first time* encounter was a disaster...)
so ever since, the Little Prince became one of my most admired characters and eventually, an item on my postcard wish list....and im more than proud to say that so far i own two Little Prince postcards...hopefully ill show the other one sometime soon....in case you hadnt read the Little Prince, i strongly recommend you do so....in general, im not a fan of books/music/movies that everyone is in love with, but this is one of those times when an exception is made...totally justified...
