I am looking forward to getting to know all my new readers and fans. I would like to now quote from Robert Fulghum’s book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten:
“All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but they’re in the sand pile at Sunday school. These are the things I learned: share everything. Play fair. Don’t hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don’t take things that are not yours. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. live a balanced life -- learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that. Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup -- they all die. So do we. And then remember the Dick‑and‑Jane books and the first word you learned--the biggest word of all--look.” (Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten. Pg. 6-7).
This book has always touched me, and I hope it helps my readers!
