My name is not Simon but I wish I knew his secret




When I was a kid my favorite show on television was “Simon in the Land of Chalk drawings” It was a old show from the UK, but came on good ole Captain Kangaroo. I lived in a land of imagination when I was little, and I loved my chalk board. I drew and looked for walls but never could find that land. Now today I’d be in trouble if I did find that land. Because I’d be doing chalk drawings all the time. Could you just imagine? “Well you know my name is Derek,
and the things I draw come true,
Oh pictures take me, take me over,
Climb the ladder with you.” Oh take me, take me take me too the land of hairy chalk drawings true.

    If that’s a free-handed chalk drawing, wow! I can only imagine what it would have looked like with more refinement. I love it the way it is though!
