I think potatoes offer a valuable life lesson . I know what you are thinking.  I may be a French fry aficionado (is there a magazine for that?), but I’m not going there.  Nope.  I’m talking about the unadulterated potato.   Small, on the grandiose scale of things, potatoes illicit an inspiration akin to a standing ovation.  They even inspire songs (“You’re my little potato”)!  But you have to dig for it.  You have to reach right into the dirty heart of the matter and pull out these little nuggets of beauty.  It’s work, for sure.  But there’s something about hunting for treasure that has inspired humans for centuries.  The discovery of secret value buried there right beneath our feet.  It’s around us all the time-this buried treasure of life.  Little nuggets of beauty all covered with the soil and debris of everyday living that only require a little digging on our parts.  You know, they have invented a machine for digging potatoes, do you think they have one for digging up life’s little buried treasures?
