So many books. So little time.
A picture is worth a thousand words
Words can create pictures too.
The power of imagination.
A good conversation is a good life
Random thoughts on the how and why of writing
When Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld collaborate magic happens. The good kind of magic, that carries you away into a happy place.
Writing as a litany of wishes:
More give than take.
More will than hill
More can than knot….. and more, and many more.
There is wordplay at work here: a Rosenthal trademark.
Illustrations, colorful, sparse, yet drawing out meaning. Look at the illustration for “I wish you more pause than fast-forward.” Perfection.
The book is a benediction, and more. It is a poem of gratitude: “I wish all this for you, because you are everything I could wish for….and more.”
Perfection. As a reader one could not ask for more.
