The brainpicker article or the "be quiet near a stream and listen" advice?

be quiet near a stream and listen

that.  the words, the sentiment, the lovely little drawing...

Do you know where the lovely little drawing is from?

no, i don't.  this is the first i've seen it.  but it looks like a maurice sendak to me.

Good guess! A collaboration with Ruth Krauss called "Open House for Butterflies":

It really does. I'm happy you discovered it!
