Police ID mystery boy who donated savings of $10.03: 11yr-old Max Siepert, who donated his entire savings, had been saving his money since April. "It's not always how much you give, but the thought behind the gift," Greenfield Assistant Police Chief Paul Schlecht said. "It's only 10 dollars and three cents, but for a kid that age, it's all his money, and he worked hard for it." "If every person would do that, we would have such a great world," Max said."It would be awesome."
11-year old Max Siepert anonymously gave all his money - $10.03- to local police department....

Oscar Pistorius or the blade runner is known as the fastest man on no legs. Just posting an article about how inspiring it is to see a man who does not focus on what he can't do, but rather what he can do.

@David Airey shared this http://www.lettersofnote.com/2013/09/dont-feel-bad-that-im-gone.html on Twitter today and now I'm sharing it with all of you because I'm sure Jim Henson made an impact on your childhood too. He encouraged us to chase the rainbow connection. He had a hand in making all of us the dreamers we are today.
In memory of Jim Henson, who died May 16, 1990. The Muppets will always hold a special place in my heart!

“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a #WildThing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received." RIP #MauriceSendak
Any book by, or interview with Maurice Sendak is worth reading.
"I like interesting people and kids are really interesting people," Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak passed away today...unbelievably sad.

Tom Hanks in Big reminds grown ups to be more playful!

Big (1988) - Dir. Penny Marshall This moment sums up so much of the magic of this film. I don't know anyone my age who doesn't want one of these pianos.
Big has to be one of my all time favorite movies. Probably my favorite of Tom Hanks, Forrest Gump is my second.
classic movies --- Big
Big (1988): The toy store on 5th Avenue provided the setting for the fondly remembered scene in which Robert Loggia, a toy company executive making weekend rounds, joins Tom Hanks, a 13 year old boy inhabiting the body of a man, in a spirited duet on a giant electronic keyboard. Though most of the displays were those found in the actual store, the overscaled keyboard was added by the film's production designer as a way to subtly reinforce the movie's underlying confusion of big and small.
