You know how people are always talking about stress and pain and grief as learning experiences? They can be, sure, if you think about them and work at it. But you know what? I think joy and relaxation and just plain fun can be learning experiences, too. They can be cause for us to grow as people, too. They can teach us valuable things about the world, too. We are not just monkeys with sticks. We can be monkeys with carrots, too.
Hey, do monkeys eat carrots?
Umm, right. I think I'd better finish my potica before I make any more pronouncements.
