i (heart) shel silverstein.

there once was a tree, and she loved a little boy.
Listen to the mustn'ts child,
Listen to the don'ts,
Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never-haves,
Then listen close to me;
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.

-Shel Silverstein

the one and only poem i have committed to memory. sad? nooooo. heartening. i cannot recite this poem without smiling and feeling anything but hopeful. and neither can you. try it. i dare ya.

take a little trip down memory lane and check out his website.
