Was thinking about this:
“From beavers, bees should learn to mend their ways.
A bee works; a beaver works and plays.”
–American proverb (allegedly–I’ve never heard this proverb before!), Oxford Treasury of Sayings & Quotations
One of the aspects of my life that makes me happiest is that I do the same thing for work that I do for play. My “job” is exactly what I do with my free time: reading, writing, taking notes, observing people.
Not one day goes by when I don’t think about it, and feel thankful for it.
