So many people bemoan television, declaring that it stifles creativity, encourages stereotypes and leads to laziness in mind and body. Since I’m often inspired, entertained and educated by television, I thought I’d share a few things it has taught me:
- Home repairs are easier than you think and can be learned with a little effort.
- A good meal may take extra work, but the taste and satisfaction of doing it well are worth it.
- Pets and children are often the source of unexpected laughter. Their playfulness is contagious.
- Even if you don’t have money to travel to a new country, there is excitement, adventure, and captivating places near every city or town in the U.S. All you need is to look around.
- Every person you meet has at least one compelling story to tell. Find out what it is. Both of you will enjoy it.
- Engineering and scientific exploration are much more enthralling and stimulating in real life than they are in books.
- The various creatures that inhabit this earth are beautiful, fascinating, and worth preserving.
- The world of science is infinitely more complex, magnificent and intriguing than what we learned in school.
