Pleasure in Work

“When we find pleasure in our work, we see how jobs and tasks, even ones that are challenging or difficult, can be done with purpose and engagement. Work, a necessary component of life, has the potential for both ecological responsibility and a sense of dignity. Finding pleasure in our work guides us in two ways: it helps us recognize personal work that is inspiring, gratifying, and productive; and it helps us humanize any workplace we find ourselves in.”
– Alice Waters

(From the book We are what we eat)

A Poem for Someone Who is Juggling Her Life

This is a poem for someone
who is juggling her life.
Be still sometimes.
Be still sometimes.

It needs repeating
over and over
to catch her attention
over and over,
as someone who is juggling her life
finds it difficult to hear.

Be still sometimes.
Be still sometimes.
Let it all fall sometimes.

– Rose Cook

(From Notes From a Bright Field)
