With my thanks to Dr. Seuss

August 8, 2007

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

– from I Had Trouble Getting to Solla Sollew




  1. I absolutely adore Dr. Seuss. I have most of them (although, oddly, not this one) and I read the Grinch to the kids every Christmas.

  2. Wow! This is almost something Eckhart Tolle, or Buddha, could have written! 🙂

    Happy weekend Ang!! xoxo

  3. CS ~ Dr. Seuss was so amazing. Definitely a one-of-a-kind. I’m partial to Fox in Socks, myself. And the kids get a big kick out of Green Eggs and Ham.

    Hi Dan! That must be why I like it! I hope your weekend was lovely. We drove through Bend, and I thought of you and Laura. It’s really changed in 10 years!

  4. Oh, the places you’ll go!

    I am an award-winning headline writer for a newspaper. And when people in the business ask me how to be a better headline writer, I say simply: “Love words. Long to roll naked in them and feel them stick to your sweaty stippled flesh. And read Dr. Seuss as you do for rhythm and meter and brevity.”

  5. Jim ~ marvelous advice! I don’t know that I love words quite that much (which may be why my headlines aren’t as good as they could be), and since I may not be able to increase my love of words, I may need to up my daily dose of Dr. Seuss, who was on to so many things in so many ways on so many different levels that it boggles my mind. Thanks so much for visiting!
