Chimp in a cloud

The oblivious chimp

Reminder to self

Chimp not know he protected by Cloud—
Noise try penetrate, Cloud would lament
She transform All to lullabies,
Chimp blissful and Content.

One day, Signal pierce through sweet Cloud—
Chimp snook glimpse of world as brand new
Terrifying. Beautiful. Like nothing before.
Yet all be forgot, as loud lullabies grew

Time pass, That glimpse stuck with Chimp
Each Resonance met defiance from Cloud.
“Something—still unknown—not right“,
Chimp finally declared out loud.

At no Particular time, another signal pierced
Chimp ready to embrace All that may be.
With that—for first time—Chimp notice Cloud.
Chimp wonder—if This—what else he not see.


obliviouschimp mission
Pain is not only inevitable, it is the proven necessity for growth. Yet when the toddler falls we coddle and deny them this gift of agitation. We stunt ourselves and others when cowering from pain. Building on top of the best in neuroscience and philosophy, obliviouschimp creates children’s books as tools to lean into that pain in a unique, fun (yep, fun!) and memorable way.
