Tao Te Ching meets Bioregionalism

[from my friend, Tad… thanks, Tad!]
Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is a way of foolishness.
Help them to find the wonder and the marvel of an
ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples, and pears.
Show them how to cry when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.

– Tao Te Ching
