Life and what we do with it.

April 14, 2017

Today I saw two men working on a house addition.  Two stories high, just upright boards against the sky.  They were both balancing on not much.  One steadied a piece of plywood while the other man used both hands to nail gun the plywood to one of those uprights.  Each totally dependent on the other.  Like a dance.

Were they afraid?  Was this business as usual?  How do you learn that? Is that art? I think so.  Is an hourly wage enough applause?  Is satisfaction of a job well done compensation for risking your life?

Those two men caused me to stop and consider my life.  What is work and what is art?  How high can I go?

I guess we are all risk takers.  What do you do with your life?  How high do you want to go?  Tell me.  Show me.
