Tomorrow I am off to the Dr. Seuss exhibition held at a local gallery. I was told about the exhibition by a wonderful friend...she and I enjoy many long winded chats about art, society, and so forth. I had not heard of the Dr. Seuss collection before she stumbled upon it and enlightened me that it was in town for the next few weeks.
I remember Dr. Seuss books and the impact they had on me as a child. I loved his way of telling a story, and the wackiness of which he would tell a tale to his reader. When I was just a little girl, and had to have stories read to me... one of my favorites was "Marvin K Mooney will you please go now!" It seemed that no matter which Dr. Seuss book you were being read, the story teller would always have hand gestures and fluctuations in the voice when telling the tale.. how could you not get excited and tell those stories with pizazz?
When I graduated, my aunt L gave me the "Oh, the places you'll go" book. It was wonderful, and I cherish it to this day. I think it was one of the neatest gifts I received, such accomplishment achieved, and yet, it brought me back to my childhood of when I read the book and thinking of all the possibilities ahead of me.. and then years later, upon graduation, I had those possibilities ahead of me again... thank you aunt L for that beautiful gift.
Anyway, I am off to the exhibition tomorrow. I cant wait to see whats in store... if you would like a sneak peak.. check out the website...
I will let you know how it goes and what wacky wonderful things I stumble upon... I'm having breakfast near the gallery tomorrow.. I wonder if the local restaurants are offering "Green eggs and ham" for the daily special?
