Richard, your words show so much wisdom, always! Your dad is VERY proud of you my friend!!!

Marjorie Israel

What a heart warming tribute to your Dad and to you.

Bea P.

Nice, Richard... That quote caught my fancy, too, when I read it. Very interesting and provocative... I'm sure your Dad would be very proud, although I expect you will be quoted many more times...

jane schenck

Kudos, of course!! But what I'd really like to see is much more of the explanation, of your thinking behind that quote, Richard!!

Jane Zimmy

Richard, how fitting that I'm reading this in Jerusalum!

Rebecca Klemm

Morris is VERY proud of you! He is holding the page with your quote and smiling from ear to ear! His son in His paper. One day he stopped on your page.

Chris Browne

Richard, this is wonderful, I love your quote and the others and the synergy that results. Quantum physics suggest the possibility that no moment is lost, they are all still out there, real and viable as ever, as real as when we lived them. On that basis alone I would offer that your father is somewhere in that continuum now, looking on you with love. And he always will be. Best, Chris

Jane Schaffer

I love your thoughts about your dad and how as a boy you walked with him to pick up the New York Times from the small town hotel every Sunday. But like others, I am curious as to your meaning. Having worked with small children for many years and now writing books for them, I am not sure that the 21st century child is different to the 19th century child or the 15th century child for that matter, in their inner core; one of the best toys is still the card board box!


Jane, I have had several people ask me to elaborate and I will in a future article.


Hala AlDuwik

So Beautiful! You deserve the best! I am sure your dad is proud of you and so we are in the business of play!
