Today's Zen Calendar has this quote, from Wolfgang Goethe:
One must ask children
and birds how strawberries
Of course, Goethe is referring not simply to taste but to the ability or willingness or capacity, the openness, to experience things fresh, first-hand, not with foreordained notions, not with predictable outcomes, not with preconceived templates.
We fail to do this often, thereby missing the Aha!
Of course, I find the Aha! from things in nature more easily than in people.
