Hears Who?

One of my daughter’s fav books was Seuss’ “Horton Hears a Who.” Well, ok, one of my favs. 🙂

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

So I wonder if any of the small people visible in this snap of Horton Plaza in San Diego hear we who were flying nearly a mile above.

I like this pic because it hints at the creative nature of this mall. We’ve several times been on one side of that diagonal slit down the middle, wanting to reach people or shops on the other side. When we did find a place to cross over, it typically took us to a different level from the one we wanted so then we’d be searching for stairs. But of course, many of the stairs take you back to the other side where you started (tho at a different level). Maybe our playful Dr. Seuss influenced the design even tho the Horton it was named for was presumably the SD historical figure rather than the book (and movie) hero.

  2. Maybe you’ll discover the charms Seuss can work in a kid with a musical ear.
    “A walrus with whiskers is not a good pet, but a walrus which whispers is worse even yet…” Well, you’re right, I’m regressing into a childish love of Seuss. 😀
