Do you ever find yourself watching a children's show, and when it ends you think, "Whoever wrote that had a lot of fun in the writers room. And possibly a toxic amount of espresso."
I was watching Arthur with Miss C today and I don't usually love this show.
But this episode had an appearance by Neil Gaiman, and then this falafel maker who dispenses deep thoughts on life, and a concept of round people versus pointy people (pointy people always need to make a point!) and I wanted to rewind it and watch it again.
If you are a fan of falafel, or Neil Gaiman, or have an inner-critic when you'd rather have an inner-Neil, or are writing your first graphic novel and need a boost of support, I share with you, Falafelosophy:
If you don't want to give 9 minutes to this, I'll give you the edited version, in print:
"What you seek will be found.
Trust those that you have helped to help you in their turn.
Trust your heart, and trust your story.”
---Neil Gaiman, from Instructions
