Of the thousand and one things I needed to get done tonight…this seemed to be the most important.
I know you get a hundred score messages of appreciation and love every day, Ms. Faust. But today, on your birthday, I have to tell you once again how much your work- as an artist and as a woman- means to me. You have inspired me, you have given shape to my own hopes and dreams. And, in specific, this pastel-colored world of ponies has opened up a direct link to the joy and wonder of being a child all over again.
I don’t have the words to properly, completely, and definitively express everything I want to say, Ms. Faust. So I will simply say-
Thank you. And I wish you the very happiest of birthdays!
