Oh the Places You’ll Go…

 

20190302_091823~2.jpg

I grew up reading Dr. Seuss books. I grew up reading a lot in general really, but he was one of my favorite authors when I was a tyke.

His stories were fun with silly nonsensical words, made up creatures, and great adventures. I loved the Sneetches, with the stars on their bellies and The Cat in the Hat, who always made things interesting and sometimes smellies. Smellies? Sure, I needed something that rhymed with bellies and why not be a little silly along the way? Why yes, Sam I am, I do like green eggs and ham. I’d eat them with you here, there, and everywhere!

My sixteen year old son and I had a tradition that involved us honoring the great author by reading his books on his birthday and sometimes the days leading up to it. We’d read oh so very many, perhaps five, 12, or even twenty. Why, I’m sure that’s plenty!

I have a daughter who is almost three and she loves books. I’m ever so proud to have two children who love to get lost in their pages! So now, with it being March 2nd, the birthday of one fabulously creative man, I continue this tradition.

What about you? Will you read a tale today, maybe two? There’s plenty to choose from! There’s books about apples on top! What about fish that are read and blue? The choice is yours, so totally up to you!! Just make sure to smile, enjoy, and share that joy of reading, whatever you do!!

Stuck In Wonderland

Image

Crazy, chaotic, & stressful

That about summed up my life

I’d often daydream

Imagining myself away from this place

Somewhere fun, without any worries to ruin my day

 

Come with me, fly on a magic carpet

Imagine it and it’ll happen

Animals talk and trees do too

Chase a white rabbit for awhile

Would you care to have tea with me?

 

Stroll with me down a golden path

Make a wish or two

And watch them come true

What’s that you say?

Oh silly me, make that wishes three for thee

 

But too far down the rabbit hole I must have fell this time

The further from reality I stray

Wherever I look, danger seems to follow

The sky gets darker and darker

And an evil queen wants me dead

 

My genie vanished

No ruby slippers that’ll take me home

Someone call my name

Wake me, please

Save me from this place

 

They call it Wonderland

A magical place

But they forgot to mention

Just how twisted magic can be

Turning childhood fantasies into nightmares

 

As stressful as real life can be

I realized then perhaps it’s not so bad after all

Hurry, the queen is chasing me!

And my magic carpet has gone M.I.A.

Wake me now and save the day

 

The white rabbit is shouting something to me

But his voice has become distorted

The wicked witch joined the hunt for my head

I beg of you, please

Save me before I end up dead

 

Oh silly girl, don’t you know?

You’re not asleep at all

Though it is all inside your head

Focus now on reality instead

For what you see is what you get

 

No more Wonderland for me

One more glimpse back

I toss the key into the mist

And walk forward toward the light

For that’s the right way to go

 

Not sideways or upside down

Going backwards is counterproductive

I like to go on an adventure now and then

But sometimes reality is more thrilling

And definitely worth living in

The Perceptions Square

In the material and spiritual realm

Upashna

In happiness my words I lack, in grief they overflow.
