Happy birthday, Jim Henson
Jim Henson has always been near the top of my Most Admired list. I loved his unbounded creativity and penchant for visual punchlines.
In celebration of his birthday, here are a few others from my list...
Dr. Seuss: And what happened then...? Well...in Who-ville they say that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day!
Steven Spielberg: Redefined the action movie genre. Humanitarian. Seven kids. How cool is that?
William Wegman: Dressing up dogs in funny costumes! How cool is that??
Anne Geddes: ...enough said.
Carl Sagan: Billions and billions. He made science cool. Or me nerdy, not sure which.
Woody Allen: When I imagine the perfect gig, it involves writing and directing a new movie every year for 40 years.
Paul McCartney: Or writing a classic song every month for 50 years.
Everyone who has made the world a better place by virtue of the love they give, the laughter they incite, or the people that they inspire.
Who do you admire?
