I had a different post in mind for today, but yesterday afternoon the neighbors gathered in our yard and Marcellina brought storybooks. When spontaneous magic happens, you post about it.
And the kids were into it! Marcellina let me read Rain Makes Applesauce, an imaginative book written with a tad bit of sarcasm by Julian Scheer, with phantastic illustrations by Marvin Bileck.
I loved books when I was a kid, but did I scream and laugh at every page? Was Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures In Wonderland as thrilling as this? Yes, I think it was (and still is--has been for a long time). The original drawings by John Tenniel remain uniquely wonderful, too.
I had other stuff to do yesterday. I forget what it was. Who cares?
