...in other words...

If little else, the brain is an educational toy.
-- Tom Robbins

I have never really thought of the brain this way. But I guess I can see it, especially since I love to do puzzles and that to me makes teh brain an educational toy. Puzzles and games help to keep our brains young. If we don't use the brain and challenge it it will go to mush just like our other muscles do when not used.

I think this quote means to play with things, don't be afraid to try things..."toy" with them to expand your knowledge and experience.

This is how I live my life, especially lately. I try as much as possible, even things that in the past I would have avoided. I am not saying that there is nothing I will not try, but at this time I am trying to be more open and experience life to it's fullest. I believe that is what God has intended for us on this earth.


  1. Oh, I play with ideas ALL the time.

    And my mind, I'm told, is a dangerous neighborhood I ought not be wandering around in alone. LOL Believe it or not, that's very true for me.

  2. OOOoooohhhhh....And Happy Turkey Day to you, ma'am!
