In my house, fairy tales, nursery rhymes and storybooks are as important to daily life as peanut butter sandwiches at lunch time and bubble baths before bed. One of my favorite classics is "The Owl and The Pussycat" -- a beautiful little love story that has inspired quite a few paintings in the past few months.
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are!'
