Casual Friday - Dr. Seuss

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go. Dr. Seuss

Happy Read Across America Day! The NEA's Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading. It's celebrated every March 2nd because today is the birthday of the beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. 

Today is also the opening day of the film, The Lorax. I enjoy good kids' movies and I loved reading Dr. Seuss books to my children when they were younger. Now, if I could only convince my teenagers to go see this movie with me.

You don't need to be a child to enjoy a good book. So today, and everyday, steer yourself in any direction you choose with a book. Why not start this weekend and crack open that book you've been intending to read? You'll be glad you did.

You know I never really "got" his books, but I must say I do like some of the quotes which have a way of sticking in your mind like his there's no one that's youer than you one - I like that a lot :-)

Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham after being challenged by his editor to write a book using fewer than 50 different words! I love the word play, rhyming schemes and nonsense of his stories. It's just good fun and his quotes, though silly rhymes, somehow always ring true. It's a beautiful thing!

Survival > Existence,
