Teddy Bears bring together the great Teddy Bear people and if you are reading this now, you are one of them! The cards, both e-cards and snail mail (still my favorite), have been such ray's of sunshine during this dismal winter recovery period. I can not emphasize too much the importance of sharing.
Shared sorrow, is 1/2 the sorrow. Shared joy is TWICE as much joy.
Teddy Bears Are Real - Not a Wii World Bear
1. The antique bears that are so admired and are real. I would not pay $10,000 for an electronic image of a teddy bear unless they presented the real thing to me later and of course it was one we did not have.
2. Our childhood teddy bears, which we treasure and want our progeny to enjoy, are three (or four) dimensional.
3. Teddy bear artists create tangible artwork and it is the art and artist which tell the story that we buy and love.
4. Wisdom is real, rare and tangible. I can professionally evaluate anything via a photo but my best work is seeing the person with their bear and imparting personal thoughts as well. The social aspect is so underrated!
God Bless you all and 'Thank You' for being a part of my world; the Teddy Bear World.
