Openness is essentially the willingness to grow, a distaste for ruts,
eagerly standing on top-toe for a better view of what tomorrow brings. A
man once bought a new radio, brought it home, placed it on the
refrigerator, plugged it in, turned it to WSM in Nashville (home of the
Grand Ole Opry), and then pulled all the knobs off! He had already tuned
in all he ever wanted or expected to hear. Some marriages are "rutted"
and rather dreary because either or both partners have yielded to the
tyranny of the inevitable, "what has been will still be." Stay open to
newness. Stay open to change.
Grady Nutt, in Homemade, July, 1990.
