Humans have told stories for possibly 35,000 years.  We have music and we have dance. We have myths, legends, wisdom literature, poetry, sculpture, painting. We have philosophy and religion and so many beautiful insights into love, loss and hope.

The dopamine release brought on by our smart-phones, cruising angry messages on social media, is a poor substitute indeed.

Our ancestors left us a rich legacy.  We should honor them by availing ourselves of what they left.
