This is my just before sleep Gratitude List: Symbols
- The front door key of all keys. The key to a fairy house.
- The magical threshold. Love the discussion in this piece.
- Curious George. Did you know that Curious George was written by a Jewish couple who fled France just before the Nazis arrived on bicycles pieced together from spare parts and with the illustrations of Curious George hidden in their belongings? The story is fascinating. They never had children of their own, but they joked that George was a good child because he took care of his parents in their old age...the series was lucrative to say the least. You can listen to more about them here.
- Wisconsin Public Radio
In all fairness, a few years ago Mark told me about fun keys and asked if I wanted to look at some. I was rude and scornful, "Oh God, what's next? Now people have to have special keys? This ranks right up there with personalized checks as far as I'm concerned! We're such a shallow culture! People don't even know who the hell they are so they go putting money into crap like that to create some sort of identity for themselves! Puh-leeze! NO THANKS!"
Last week I was a Lowes getting some spare keys made and when I saw the Tinkerbell key I screamed, "Wait!!!!! Wait!!!!! You haven't started mine have you? Oh my God! I have to have this one! It's ME! It's so ME you don't even know how much ME it is! It's ME all the way!"
Wow. What a shallow ME Fest display that was. I'm part of the problem. Hey, maybe that's the solution. It's going to be my new blog:
The Real Secret
"Become Part Of The Problem. It's The Best Solution."
