The Value of Nonsence

“I like nonsense. It wakes up the brain cells.” Dr. Seuss

Theodor Geisel (1904 0 1991) knew a thing or two about creativity. The Cat in The Hat has thrived for decades due to the rhythm and creativity imbued in its readable words — words suitable for small readers which tell a big story. Seuss was not afraid to be silly.

The unexpected helps break down old patterns in our brains. So start your morning off with a little Green Eggs and Ham!
