In waking a tiger

“In waking a tiger, use a long stick.” – Mao Zedong

I found this gorgeous portrait of a tiger jumping-castle, taken at my daughter’s school fete a few months back. It seemed comical and completely un-fierce.

So I chose this quote – a contender for the winner of the “Well, duh” award – to accompany it. Quite possibly a long stick would cause this tiger to simply burst and deflate.

Obviously the quote is speaking about caution, but in this instance I’m using it to illustrate the necessity of humour in the everyday.


With love,
