Quote of the Week

"I assume that like any other meaningful effort, the ritual involves sacrifice, the suppression of self-consciousness, and a certain precise tilt of the will, so that the will becomes transparent and hollow, a channel for the work. . . . It is noble work, and beats, from any angle, selling shoes."

~Annie Dillard, from Teaching a Stone to Talk

It doesn't take much to beat out selling shoes as a way to make a living! Trust me, I know these things!
