From “The Human Condition: A User’s Manual,” by Arnold Kunst
The story is told of the fiddler crossing a stream with his horse and buggy in a sparsely populated area of colonial America. The buggy got caught in mid-stream, and he could neither go forward nor go back without assistance. But rather than call out for help, he wisely chose to play his fiddle. And before long people who might perhaps have found themselves too busy to help someone in need made their way to the source of the music. After all, it sounded like a party! The guy turned an annoyance into a kind of feast.
Is there a lesson here, or what?
