Happy Birthday Shel Silverstein

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
― Shel Silverstein 09/28/1930 to 05/10/1999

“Purring is not so different from praying. To a tree, a cat’s purr is one of the purest of all prayers, for in it lies a whole mixture of gratitude and longing, the twin ingredients of every prayer.”

Kathi Appelt, The Underneath

Quote of the Week: Romona The Pest

“She was not a slowpoke grownup. She was a girl who could not wait. Life was so interesting she had to find out what happened next.” Beverly Cleary, Ramona the Pest

Ramona

 

 

One of my favorite series as a child.   Since I was a girl with ADD and Dyslexia I could relate to the pesty Ramona.  She didn’t mean to be a pest…it’s just what happened.
