1. Here’s a personal story for a change. 
Throughout my childhood, my Uncle Pat would visit us from New York and do donkey kicks with us in the living room. Whether or not he was trying to trick us, or he actually believes it himself, Uncle Pat told us, every time, “You know, I invented the donkey kick.”
He convinced my sisters and I, and in our naivete and we relayed the exciting news to our Phys Ed. teacher in elementary school. Not once did we do this, but every single year when it was gymnastics time in P.E. class. My sisters and I are each two years apart, and being three of us, Mrs. C heard that Uncle Pat invented the donkey kick for about ten years. Maintaining a great attitude, she never crushed our dreams, by teling us that he did not in fact invent the donkey kick. 
When I saw this picture on www.postsecret.blogspot.com I immediately thought of Uncle Pat. I posted the picture to his wife, Aunt Kim’s wall, to which she replied that he was eager to teach their new granddaughter the donkey kick. While she’s not yet a year old, and obviously too young to donkey kick, she’ll be great at it for sure. It runs in the family.

About me

Do you ever wonder about the world? What possibilities it holds? This blog is named after a poem by Shel Silverstein, entitled, "Picture Puzzle Piece." Through his poetic lines, Silverstein questions, embraces, and celebrates the infinite possibilities that exist. Illustrating his idea with an old, wet picture puzzle piece, Silverstein animates the mundane, the overlooked, and the flat out ignored. This story book strives to follow Silverstein and color in the blank pages of the world's coloring book. It strives to reveal the excitement, the rarity, the value in people's stories.

My name is Hannah and I love hearing stories. If you have one I could share here, I'd love to talk with you.
