Each one is traveling his own way and, though the earth be rotting with good things, there is no time to pluck the fruits...


One is ejected into the world like a dirty little mummy; the roads are slippery with blood and no one knows why it should be so. Each one is traveling his own way and, though the earth be rotting with good things, there is no time to pluck the fruits; the procession scrambles toward the exit sign, and such a panic is there, such a sweat to escape, that the weak and the helpless are trampled into the mud and their cries are unheard. ~Henry Miller

Good call on the full quote, I edited it. Still getting the hang of things. That work schedule is great... I really need to work on #1 and #6 I have too many projects using too much fertilizer and not enough cement.

You and me both! I've decided it is better to do a few things well than lots of things okay.

The challenge is choosing which few things to give our attention to.

Which brings us back to Henry Miller.
