  1. Thats a great photo! I loved his books when I was young – and later also enjoyed the TV version of his stories. Is he still alive? [I could google and find out – but …]

  2. So sad the acts of the parents, of disapproving that create a life filled with seeds of emotionally traumatic pain. Too many children have been afflicted with this unloving care and yet who opens the eyes of those to see and change their ways? And, yet, in the children the genius and goodness still comes through. Thanks for honoring him, Ela.
