We should be living to create life, food, to caretake of our place in the world. And yet so many of us have jobs that create widgets for people who have jobs to make widgets to make money so that they can buy widgets. This cycle of widgetry only brings us closer to death, a life only measured in numbers and not in people.
Kids know what work should be. They know the soil is real and they want to play in it, taste it, roll in it. And we don't want to let them. Why not? Play, taste, roll through life an you will gain a sense of happiness. Buying a widget today does not keep you happy. It does not enrich your "life", not if you are living.
Live, grow, explore the soil today!
