Inspiration for the Day


What we do is a measure of who we are. If we imagine our work as labor, we become laborers. If we imagine our work as art, we become artists.

A very profound statement. All too often, we grow weary in our "work"...whatever it might be. If we view ourselves as "artists", just think how much lighter our tasks would seem!!!!

Sounds like I tossed off my banker's hat just in time!

I'll take an artist's hat now, please! Gardens as art, redecorating my farm house as art, cooking as art - yep, sounds good.

And clearly your cute pooch agrees, I'm sure barking as art is a familiar refrain...

I wanna kiss that puppy nose! And that's a good twist of looking at things. :)

Lately, I've been a labourer....

Love that. I need to remember that more and it is a good thing to teach my little artist who prefers not to labour at anything.
