Grasshopper ~ HaikuHeights A2Z ~ Day 8

Learn from the least. On

 As soon as I saw today’s prompt word, Grasshopper, my mind drifted back to the 80’s and 90’s when my children were young.  Two TV series stand out in my mind from those days.

In the 90s we watched an American series called “Land Before Time” which was beautiful in every way.  Each episode had a moral about virtues of courage, strength, love of family etc.

In the 80’s we watched a series on TV called “Monkey“.  This was a very unusual series based on a classic sixteenth century Chinese novel “Journey to the West” by Wu Cheng’en.  The series was produced in Japan and each episode had a moral which was based on Buddhist and Taoist philosophy.  We absolutely loved it.  I am sure there was a grasshopper character in the series!
