SEE YOU TOMORROW...
It's a work day, so no words from me today. Just my brand new tux shirt fluttering in the breeze.
And oh yes, a recommended read. In the process of looking for a web site designer, I've been checking out dozens of web sites. So many that my mind boggles. I know so much about author bios and frequently asked questions that I might be pronouncing myself the world's leading expert some time one of these days. (I know; I'm becoming insufferable and I promise to STOP.)
Anyway, right there in the middle of my trolling of author web sites, I accidentally walked right into the most amazing thing: A book! And not just that, but a book that instantly captivated me. In fact, I got so lost in the first chapter of this memoir that I put my quest for the perfect website aside, clicked on Amazon and pre-ordered. And when I was done, I emailed the author to tell him how much his words inspired me.
Tim Madigan's book is about Fred Rogers, the truly extraordinary human being who many of us know as "Mr. Rogers". Oh, I liked the show and so did my kids, but I probably wouldn't have reached for a book on that subject. And I certainly wouldn't have rushed to pre-order it.
And if I hadn't, I might have missed a rare opportunity to be touched by the evolved and loving spirit who Madigan presents in his book.
(Now what was I saying about NO WORDS today?)
