The goat was complaining to the Red Fire Rooster that things are tough and seem to be getting worse. Because he was an excellent musician the animals in the barnyard brought him food to hear his music. He prospered for many years by sitting in front of the barn playing his delightful tunes. Now, he complained, very few animals seemed interested.
The Red Fire Rooster was a pottery maker and told a different story. He had lived through many ups and downs in the pottery business. Sometimes, it seemed, everybody was buying pottery. Other times he had to travel to many different barnyards to find animals interested in his wares. He told the goat you have to find opportunity because opportunity won’t find you.
The goat spent every day sitting in front of the barn playing his music hoping others would bring him food like they always had. He continued to complain that things are tough and seem to be getting worse. The Red Fire Rooster was happy and full of food. He told the goat that he always has food but sometimes he has to work really hard to get it.
