Oops February 25, 2009

Posted by Kimmothy in Poetry, Writing.

I forgot to add something to my post today. It’s a quote I came across the other day, completely by accident (or WAS IT?):

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” – Shel Silverstein

That one got me.

When the guy who wrote “A Boy Named Sue” talks, you GOTTA listen.

If that’s true, and I don’t think you’d lie, Brian will be crushed to learn Mr. Cash didn’t write it.

I love Shel. I have a trio of his books (“A Light in the Attic”, “Where the Sidewalk Ends” and “Falling Up”) stashed in my desk at work for when I need a pick-me-up.

It’s true. Shel wrote ‘A Boy Named Sue’. We went over that in one of my literature classes in college.

I think I even know who got Laura those books for Christmas! I have the same set.

Yeah, I’m not exactly sure why I don’t have that set, but I can tell you that will be remedied before I produce an offspring!

I really like that quote whoever wrote it!

LL – He’s a children’s author (but adults love him too – Shel Silverstein.
