Tao of the Day  
Listening is the first step and the last step.
- Cantus Fraggle, Fraggle Rock

When I hear the art of puppetry discussed, I often feel frustrated in that it's one of those pure things that somehow becomes much less interesting when it is overdiscussed or analyzed. I feel it does what it does and even is a bit weakened if you know what it is doing. At its best, it is talking to a deeper part of you, and if you know that it's doing that, or you become aware of it, you lessen the ability to go straight in. Fairy tales certainly are in this category, as is a lot of fantasy - maybe everything is.
- Jim Henson

The best doing is not doing.
The best knowing is not knowing.
The Tao resides in underanalysis, instinct, flowing between each moment, planless.

Wonderful! Any day with a Fraggle quote in it has got to be a fantastical day. :)
