“Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses. People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginative horses, but this was not the case. When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them. Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fiercefull winds grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they obviously didn’t weigh much). The girl was devistated and spent all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes.”

  • This. This is amazing. I’ve been sitting here scrolling up and down, just savoring the beauty of this. For some reason, I pictured telling this story to my daughter, while showing her the photos…hmmm. This is probably one of my favorite pieces of all time.
