Shel Silverstein.

My friend likes Shel Silverstein very much. So this post is dedicated to her ^-^. Personally, I am just amazed by how multi talented Shel is. During the time of his life, he was a successful and famous American Poet, song writer, musician, composer, cartoonist, screenwriter, and author. He wrote the music and lyrics of 'A Boy Named Sue' that was performed by Johnny Cash (for which he won a Grammy in 1970). Many of his songs are just like his poems; funny, innocent, free, loving, and touching. I've once read one of his books "The Giving Tree" about a kind tree that keeps giving until it has nothing more to give. That story has rent a room inside my mind and never left.

So, when you're good in everything, what would you do? Shel decided to devote his life to children. A noble choice.
