Hide-and-seek, grown-up style. Wanting to hide. Needing to be sought. Confused about being found.

I talk about very serious human affairs but with a lightness of heart. Robert Ful

I get tired of hearing it's a crummy world and that people are no damned good. What kind of talk is that? I know a place in Payette, Idaho, where a cook and a waitress and a manager put everything they've got into laying a chicken-fried steak on you.

The kindergarten children are confident in spirit, infinite in resources, and eager to learn. Everything is still possible.

It is the chair in honor of all those who, however competently, embrace the impossible. Sit in that chair someday.

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 aren't yours. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody. Wash your hands before you eat. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. Live a balanced life. Learn some and think some and draw some and paint and sing and dance and play and work some every day. Take a nap every afternoon, and, when you go out into the world, watch for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
