On the wall of the projection room of a company specializing in children\\\\\\\'s films are inscriptions of appreciation. One of these touched me in an extraordinary way. Along with the \\\\\\\'thank you\\\\\\\' were the following words, painted, illuminated, by the child author:
Once upon a time
There was a little boy
And he went outside.
~ from the preface of the 2nd edition of \\\\\\\"The Genesis
