Recently, I was given a very special gift. It's not the sort of gift that one adult would usually give to another, but that is precisely what makes it so meaningful and unique. I was given a children's book, a very profound children's book written by Dr Seuss called, " Oh, The Places You'll Go!" I could not have wished for a better companion and guide, as I prepare to embark on a new adventure. I have gained new insights, wisdom and understanding, not only from the pen of Dr Seuss, but also from the delightful illustrations that adorn each page. Reading it brought back so many happy memories of reading this particular book, and many others to our children as they were growing up. It prompted me, a few days later, to read a Richard Scarry and a Paddington book by Michael Bond, two of the childhood favourites that our son left behind when he left home.
It felt as if someone had turned back the clock. I was captivated and soon realised the huge role that these books had played in the lives of our children. How I had loved reading these and many other books to them. I really must visit the children's section the next time I go into a book store. There's a whole new world, one about which I had completely forgotten, that is waiting to be revisited.
" And when things start to happen,
don't worry. Don't stew.
Just go right along.
You'll start happpening too...."
" So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remembrer that Life's
a Great Balancing Act. " Dr Seuss
