Who will remember you at a 102.

By
Real Estate Agent with Edina Realty

I suppose before you can ask "who will remember you at a 102" you have to ask where you will be. If you find yourself still roaming the earth you will likely be celebrated and given great accolades simply for beating the odds. I have spoken before of the choice we have to leave a legacy... and how that will look.

Whether you grew up on "Hop on Pop" or "Green Eggs and Ham" one of the Seuss books likely helped shape your history. Still used in schools and homes around the world for reading, enjoyment, games and tools these books have certainly left a legacy for the good Doctor for years past his own end.

This year (today) we celebrate his birthday and with great jubilation. The boys were thrilled that PBS aired multiple episodes of "The Cat in the Hat" this morning and libraries everywhere were short on "One Fish Two Fish" and "Ten Apples up on Top." Grateful for our own collection of his masterpieces we have taken time this week to read a few of our favorites. From "Horton Hears a Who" to "I'm not getting up Today" Seuss wrote something for everyone to enjoy.

Certainly he left behind a love for words, laughter, joy, learning (without knowing it) and so much more. His imagination and creativity have not been forgotten and it's wonderful to see a new generation enjoy something that I grew up with!

As a writer, a reader, and an enjoyer of words and their ability to twist and turn with great fun... I am inspired by this man Seuss. May his writing continue to inspire our generations of children to be creative and legendary.  Happy Birthday to the Seussman.

Very nice!  I loved every book that I shared with my girls, and now my oldest grandson just giggles with joy when we share the joys of Dr. Seuss.  I am lucky to live in San Diego where his wife has played such an important role in many philanthropic organizations.

Valerie - They read that book at my brother's graduation. The way they knitted it into the speech was something if not inspiring.

Marti - that is really awesome to see their work so close up! I have one learning to read by Dr Seuss right now so it's really fun to know that it's his birthday. I was more surprised how excited the kids were about it.
