We Have No Art

Somehow I gave offense to an acquaintance when I quoted an art history nugget about the traditional culture of Bali, "We have no art; we do everything as well as possible." That the pride and pleasure of working to one's best ability should be  perceived as an overbearing challenge is worrisome.

I find that reminding myself of this quotation makes it easy to slow down enough to connect with whatever physical task is at hand. Since I volunteered for the life I'm living, there's no room for grousing -30-
