Le Petit Prince, Simple Supper and Wild Strawberries

1   I was first introduced to the beautiful story, Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry, many, many years ago when I was in the 6th form and in France for a three week exchange with Josiane Fromage and her family in Toulouse. (Wouldn’t it be just brilliant if she, or someone who knows her, were to read this blog?)  Finding this quotation, “One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye,”  the Fox speaking to the Little Prince, has inspired me to read it again.
