“Why, instead of doing things the right way, do we do them in a way we know will end badly?”
When my friend Jenn called me the other day with this question, it wasn’t merely academic.
Jenn recently became a beekeeper. Over the course of just a few weeks she already had come to think of her thousands of honeybees as little buzzing friends. Watching their goings (sans pollen) and comings (fully pollen-loaded) was giving her hours of pleasure.
