From Yamhill to Forever

April 12, 2011

Beverly Cleary (undated)A note for Ms. Beverly Cleary: Happy ninety-fifth birthday, ma’am. And thank you so much for a lifetime’s worth of stories.

From Yamhill to your own two feet, Klickitat Street, and the infinity of our dreams and imaginations, these stories are your indelible signature on this human endeavor.

As Ray Bradbury is fond of saying: No bad rice for you; you’re going to live forever.
