Current Mood: optimistic
Following is an excerpt from The Writer's Almanac. It's an NPR show that I have delivered via email daily. So I find a little inspiration, almost daily as well.
It's the birthday of Khalil Gibran, (books by this author) born in Bsharri, Lebanon (1883). When Gibran was 12 years old, his mother left her husband and moved her four children to Boston. He grew up, became a popular host, and one day the publisher Alfred A. Knopf came to one of his parties. Knopf was impressed, and he published Gibran's book The Prophet (1924). It became a huge best-seller in the 1960s.
The Prophet contains lines like: "Work is love made visible."
Awww! That's a sweet way for me to justify why I work more than I play. And I thought I just enjoyed projects!
