“ When a condition or a problem becomes too great, humans have the protection of not thinking about it.

John Steinbeck (via misswallflower)

In 1989, a little girl named Amy sent a bottle of colored water, oil and glitter to Roald Dahl, who knew right away that this was a dream in a bottle inspired by his book, The BFG. In response, the author penned this short note to his 7-year-old fan.
