Kermit And Plato

After months of asking about Chinese myth and recieving either blank stares or incomprehensible tales about monkeys in magic headbands, I finally heard a fable I understand.

A frog lives in a deep well, and all he can see is the walls of the well and a small circle of sky at the top. The frog looks up at the little patch of clouds and sun and he thinks that the world is small.

Sometimes I think China may not be so strange after all.
