Twice Told Tales

Use what you have.

Share what you have.

Respect nature.

Try to make peace where there is war.

You can reach your destination by taking small steps.

The above is the legacy of John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed.  This past weekend, we saw his story, along with Paul Bunyan’s, brought to life by Mixed Precipitation at the Hennepin County Library.  We also read the picture book biography of Mr. Chapman, Seed by Seed.

It has me thinking about slowing down, appreciating what we have, and doing what I can to create a better world.

More folktales will be brought to life at the library in November and December.  See the library’s web site for details.  You can check out more photographs of the event on my photoblog.
