Kermit <3

I really have to thank my Grandma and Sesame Street for fostering that place early on where I could dream and imagine anything. I dont think I could have created GPG or any of the GPHero characters without giving big cred to the King of Green- Kermit the Frog. As a 5 year old I loved Kermie and my heart sang along and ached with him as he sang, “It’s not that easy being green….but as tall as a tree” meant something to me. That thing, being green was and is good enough and thats what Kermit taught me. Green is good enough, a very important lesson indeed.

It was his power as a mere frog who often expressed his vulnerabilities that made him real. So tonight, when he and Ms. Piggy were nominated for their Oscar, it brought that old 5 year old sense of joy right back, and he looked so cute in a tux! So heres to you Kermie and Jim Henson and the whole cast of Sesame Street for all you have done to bring countless children the joy of learning, big imagination and for reminding us that rainbows can bring us any magical thing we can dream about!
