I once encountered a confined disfigured shadow who sang “as free as a bird, as free as a bird, locked up in a cage and I’m as free as a bird!” I thought him to be both wise and foolish.  Wise because through confinement he came to realize the true essence of inner freedom- and foolish because of the unnecessary destruction that preceded his realization.

The best medicine for grumbling is gratitude. It’s free and it never ends, yet sometimes it’s hard to find. Visit your nearest prison, orphanage, hospital, or graveyard. There’s so much to be grateful for.
