Beauty Resides ...

This quote had me thinking of how many wonderful people I have in my life that this statement could apply to. It is not the beauty of a certain place, it is the beauty of the person.

I remember not wanting to go too fast, afraid that I would lose traction with the thin wheels that supported my 10 speed bicycle. The cool air blowing against my face made me feel like I could do anything, it was invigorating. I wondered if this feeling would last forever.

It could have been when I first read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach or The Big Friendly Giant. Whenever I came across this quote by him, I knew I had to use to for Whimsical Wednesday. Who is your favorite childhood author?
