"The Ties that Bind" By David Vordtriede
When I think of Fraggle Rock and what it has taught me over the past 30 years, my mind immediately goes to how the three main species that co-habitate the world of Fraggle Rock really depend on each other, despite their obvious differences. By just being themselves they have created a perfectly balanced ecosystem. The one common element that binds them all together is their need and desire for the radish. It is the radish that keeps the world of Fraggle Rock perfectly balanced. Jim Henson taught us so many important world lessons such as this in so many simple and fantastical ways.
