Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.

Happy Labor Day.

Rosie Albrann and Ramona Fonseca are part of a long women’s labor and fashion history that extends back to the turn of the 20th century. These garment workers are from the Barenveld Shirt Factory in San Fernando, California (ca. 1943). Their placards read: “We want a union.” and “We want a free country too.”

Love it.

As long as we focus on the object we know, we will miss the new one we need to see. The process of unlearning in order to relearn demands a new concept of knowledge not as thing but as a process, not as a noun but as a verb.
If you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you. All you need to do is to be curious, receptive, eager for experience. And there’s one strange thing: when you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.
Eleanor Roosevelt, 1960 
The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.
Albert Einstein
There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come.
Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885), French poet, playwright, novelist, essayist, and human rights activist.
"I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." - Audrey Hepburn (photo above from Roman Holiday)

Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.

Guillaume Apollinaire (1880 - 1918) - poet, writer and art critic 

The Life You Ought to be Living is the One You Are Living

I remember reading excerpts of Joseph Campbell's "The Power of Myth" when I was in middle school. His acclaimed PBS series with Bill Moyers (circa 1988) was watched by many, including my mom. I’ll never forget the first time my mom read aloud this part below. Hearing it 20+ years ago definitely put me on a kind of track…. 

"If you do follow your bliss,

you put yourself on a kind of track 

that has been there all the while, waiting for you. 

And the life that you ought to be living,

is the one you are living.

Wherever you are, if you are following your bliss, 

you are enjoying that refreshment, 

that life within you, all the time.

When you can see that, 

you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss,

and they open doors for you. 

I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, 

and doors will open

where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
