If ever there was a saint, Mr. Rogers was one. An inspiring remix featuring Fred Rogers musings on imagination, thinking, curiosity and learning says it all -- from Symphony of Science's John "Melodysheep" Boswell, who teamed up with PBS Digital Studios to produce "Garden Of Your Mind." ABC News reports the video is “going viral” on YouTube. Google “PBS Digital Studios” and you’ll see it’s true – plenty of sites and blogs spreading the fun. As of this morning has clocked more than 3.7 million views.
Selected highlights from the lyrics …
Imagine every person you see is someone different,
From every other person in the world.
There are so many things to learn about in this world,
And so many people who can help us learn.
Did you ever grow anything in the garden of your mind?
You can grow ideas in the garden of your mind.
It’s good to be curious, about many things.
You can think about things and make believe,
All you have to do is think, and they’ll grow.
Somewhere in the cosmos I imagine Mr. Rogers is smiling right now – and singing right along.
