Why I Do like Green Eggs and Ham

Change isGood

Although my boy is grown and gone, I've been hanging around a 2year old (grandson) lately. He loves the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Naturally, I can't get the darn thing out of my head now.

But that's o. k. Unlike the character in the book who claims he doesn't like green eggs and ham,I believe I do. "Why"? you ask. Because its unconventional. For me it represents the individuality of humankind. I think we missed the other half of The doctors point! You see, it's not only that you shouldn't be afraid to try something new, you also shouldn't be afraid to be something new. O.k., I'm reading too much into the book, but I have been hearing it 8 hours a day for a week now.

Interesting readng


It does occur to me ,though, that the two go hand and hand. It is by trying new things that we evolve into new beings. When we become too comfortable in our own little world (you know,the world in your head), we fail to progress in our life. "If we fail to progress, we digress" (sorry, I can't remember the author).

Does that mean we should try everything and anything that occurs to us? No, I think this is where judgment comes in. But if we can determine the actual danger is minuscule, there is no reason we can't elect to try it out for size, so to speak.

I can hear the shouts of, " Don't be ridiculous. What you propose would lead to chaos". To which I would reply, " Today's chaos is tomorrow's normal". I understand there are some flaws in this type of logic, yet there seems to be a certain kind of sense to it. The universe is really just a result of enough changes over enough time ( for those of us believing in creationism, it could be God's way of creating). So maybe ,we are fighting evolution by resisting change.

In all reality the world as we know it is probably a result of keeping what works, and discarding the rest. You will have to excuse my digression, after all i have been listen to a two year old read Dr. Seuss for over a week now.

Thanx for listening to my ramblings.

      I love ham with fried eggs and waffels and cane syrup. Plus a large glass of chocolate milk and I am in Heaven. God Bless.

      I also like Green Eggs and Ham. I am well pleased to meet a kindred spirit. And from Michigan at that! :-)

      Dr Seuss is simply genius! My daughter has loved his books since she was also about 2, and now thaqt she's almost 8 we still read them - Horton Heard a Who, etc! And who could forget "Red fish, blue fish, ..etc"!!

      Thanks for sharing.

      Love and peace
