The Art of Writing A Book
This month children worldwide have been celebrating the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel , also known as Dr. Seuss. It seems everyone we know recognizes his characters, books, and sentence structure. The bold colors and the simple lines appeal to our senses. Let’s take a look at some of Dr. Seuss’s color style.
Turquoise Blue and Red prevail in Dr. Seuss’s works along with Black and White. So what do those colors mean, Mandala Sisters? WW
Turquoise heightens creativity and sensitivity while healing the emotions with balance and stability. Turquoise is the color of awareness. It’s great for children and great for adults learning to work with their intuition.
Red signifies energy and strength and is a powerful communicator and attention grabber. Everyone on the planet “knows” red just like they “know” a circle. Red has that unspoken quality that say, “I’m here so look at me!”
Of course, there are other bright and significant colors featured in his illustrations but not with the same frequency. Seuss obviously knew a great deal about getting a youngsters’ attention with color. Take a second and see how you feel when you first look at the covers of his books. Try to look with fresh eyes!
“Was it the gin, the Dean, or the boat?”
“Dr. Seuss” had an interesting beginning into the creative world. Mandala Sisters like to research artists and why they do what they do. Did you know “Dr. Seuss” began because of a drink of gin!
During the Roaring ’20′s ,Dartmouth student, Theodor Seuss Geisel was caught drinking gin with some fellow classmates. Dean Craven Laycock reprimanded Theodor Geisel by kicking him off the school paper. Ya can’t keep a good artist down so Geisel began using his middle name as a pseudonym to secretly continue writing for the paper and shortly thereafter ”Dr. Seuss” came into being.
Dr. Seuss took a ocean liner to Europe and the rhythmic sound of the engines begat the meter for his first children’s book:
“And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street”.
All of us owe a lot to his efforts toward inviting us to read, explore poetry, art, and nonsensical characters. Dr. Seuss was professionally challenged to create a storybook to encourage children and thus ”The Cat in the Hat” came into being. (Could this be another “embed” story?)
Life offers each of us it’s twists and turns, but in Dr. Seuss’ case we have to ask, “was it the gin, the Dean, or the ocean liner” that we should all thank?
And the teacher of the energy lesson is:
Mandala Sisters read energy all the time. Whether it’s from the human kingdom, animal kingdom, the inanimate kingdom, it’s all part of the World we live in. Everything around us is in continual communication.
Recently, we saw the replay of Meryl Streep accepting her Oscar and noticed the body language during her speech.
The energy lesson is this: Meryl Streep is making her Oscar acceptance speech. Our wonderful world-class actress “feels” the energy of those who don’t support her win.
This is the downside of being an empath–we feel everything and have the ability to pretty much know who our lovers are and who our haters are. Yet being empathic is the SECRET to her success! Meryl Streep if you are reading this, Mandala Sisters give you a nod for being SUCH a good actress that we can’t ever watch “Sophie’s Choice” again. Ever.
What does a high caliber actress do when she feels her haters? She takes her hand and “waves” away that energy! The “wave” changes and puts a stop on the incoming energy. All of us do the “wave” when we are overwhelmed or changing our belief about the severity of information coming to us. Ever seen a fussy toddler wave at energy? It works! Now you can purposefully use the wave when things get overwhelming. Wave it away! It’s another thing we’re hardwired for!
Hey, who ordered the chocolate Leprechaun?
We wish all of our readers a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Why’d You Choose That Tattoo?
Mandala Sisters ask another random person this question.
Answer: I got this tattoo to match the birthmark on my wife’s arm.
This same guy recommended this bottle of wine. Love the artwork. Maybe something like it for his next tattoo?
Wine: Dearly Beloved “Forever Red” California Wine
