“But what I like doing best is Nothing,”

“But what I like doing best is Nothing,” said Christopher Robin.

‘How do you do Nothing?’ asked Pooh, after he has wondered for a long time.

‘Well, it’s when people call out at you just as you’re going off to do it, What are you going to do, Christopher Robin, and you say, Oh, nothing, and then you go and do it.'”

Although this has always been true simple wisdom, it seems that today it is more true than ever. I am amazed at how the people of today, are existing in a virtual reality world. Phones, texting, computers, television, it is amazing that we truly don’t need to live much in the 3D world, we are living in a fourth dimensional world of our minds. It seems we never have reason to be bored anymore because there are any number of ways in which to occupy our minds. One can only ponder the profound changes that are upon us and what they will bring.

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” Dr. Seuss

As a firm believer in the absurd and whimsical, I hold Dr. Seuss up as one of my heros. I remember going to La Jolla, CA as a young teen in the 70’s and we drove past the home of Theodor Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss and the coincidences don’t stop there. In his book Horton Hears A Who, the very first sentence “On the fifteenth of May, in the jungle of Nool, . . .” has my birthday in it, which I didn’t notice until I was reading to my own children. if that isn’t enough Seuss’s own birthday is March 2, 1904, while my first child was born March 2, 1994. Well like I said before, it is the little things for me, a little cosmic wink when I look back on my life. Lisa, Rabbit Hole Dweller

 

“The Polar Express is about faith, and the power of imagination to sustain faith. It’s also about the desire to reside in a world where magic can happen, the kind of world we all believed in as children, but one that disappears as we grow older.” Quote by Chris Van Allsburg

In my life, I had forgotten about magic. Life has a way of knocking you down, it is our job to get back to what we knew as children . . . anything is possible . . .do you believe?
