re: Thanksgiving Thinking

Dear Readers . . .

As we set aside our pens and papers today to count our blessings amongst family and friends, here’s something extra to chew on, from the writer who teaches us as much now that we’re grown as he did when we were tykes.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Editor

“When you think things are bad

when you feel sour and blue

when you start to get mad

you should do what I do!

Just tell yourself, Duckie, you’re really quite lucky!

Some people are much more

oh, ever so much more

oh, muchly much-much more unlucky than you!”

from Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?, by Dr. Seuss


  1. Very true. Been mulling over this lately as I was bummed out for the past month. I couldn’t write more than quick emails as I broke my hand. All writing on my next book stopped. But, life is still pretty good and the cast comes off Tuesday. I’m “muchly much-much more lucky” than most. Thanks! Enjoy the holidays.
