Today would have been Dr. Seuss's eleventy-first birthday.
Dr. Seuss held a very important place in my childhood--like so many kids!
I even performed a dramatic reading of The Cat in the Hat for speech in one of my high school English classes.
And I can't tell you how many times my own kids asked me to read Hop on Pop, and Green Eggs and Ham, and--our favorite--One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
Dr. Seuss's wild, whimsical imagination continues to inspire me to this very day. His artwork and lyric prose still bring me great joy.
The quote below came from a list from mental_floss that I saw this morning. I mashed it up with a free-hand drawing by one of my ridiculously talented students.
Here's to a little "nonsense" for your day.
May you embrace a little fantasy and enjoy extra laughter today!
