While the laughter of joy is in

and ready to play again.

and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.

weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

to maintain it is really difficult,
because you are doing something against nature.

nature take sides with one party.

that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle.
