A lot has changed over in my neck of the woods... including moving to a new home! Hopefully now that things are (sorta) quieting down, I'll be able to venture out more... and share my journeys with everyone!
But let's share at least one recent outting of mine! Even if it happened back in JANUARY! ^.^
That's right... nearly 2 months ago now... *I*, humble little Backpacking Brighty... had the chance to meet a REAL legend of literature...
Can you believe it!? Peter S. Beagle! The author of such books as Tamsin, A Fine and Private Place, and... the mother of all Fantasy books (as far as Lady Brooklyn is concerned!), The Last Unicorn!
He was absolutely fascinating to listen to! Especially when he spoke of writing, and creating his characters. Ah! It was magical!
As an added bonus... we got to see the restored, High-Def digital copy of the 80s animated movie to boot! After 30+ years, Lady Brooklyn and I got to see her absolute FAVORITE movie on the BIG SCREEN!
Check that one off the Bucket List! HAHA!
In fact... he was very fascinated by my story, as Lady Brooklyn described our sojourns to him! Imagine! Peter S. Beagle... intrigued by little ole' me!
Definitely an evening that neither I, nor Lady Brooklyn will soon forget!
Now... if only Mr. Beagle, and Connor Cochran... can deliver on HALF of the projects they seem to be working on (a full and unprecedented restore of the animated movie among them!)... We'll be a couple of happy unicorn fans!!!
Check out The Last Unicorn Tour Website for showings near you! Don't see one? Email Connor and suggest your city! They are touring with the film through 2015!! It's absolutely WORTH the trip!!!
Check the tour out on Facebook too!
