games people play

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

Joseph Campbell (1904-1987)mythologist, writer & lecturer

doesn't one of the critters above reminds you of mr. snuffleupagus? speaking of snuffy, today is the 41st anniversary of the premier of sesame street.

we are having some beautiful sunny days on the north coast - hope it's nice where you are and you make some time to play.

Ah, Snuffy. I watched Sesame right along with the kids. They had just enough adult humor to be appealing to all ages.

Did you read/hear about the Sesame Street anniversary on The Writer's Almanac today? I was fascinated to read about how methodical they were about mixing "the games" with learning opportunities. I was born in 1967 -- the first Sesame Street generation.

Also, I should tatoo that bit of Joseph Campbell wisdom on my forehead.

I like the Joseph Campbell quote too! I had SUCH plans, but the reality is much better I think!
Daisy's Barbara, probably Daisy too!

I get my daily dose of Sesame Street while babysitting my granddaughter...even at age 20 months she's a huge fan. That does look like Snuffy.

One of my facebook friends posted a vid of Kermit doing a rap. Have you seen it? Of course I thought of you.

I don't think I ever really had plans for life. It just sort of crept up on me.
