A gentle kick in the pants

Lest I ever complain about my work life. I do, sometimes. But nothing is as bad as it was when I was teaching. I like what Keillor has to say. I wonder what inspired it. And the quote below is one of my favorite parts of the article.

"Clarity is hard. Honesty can be hard. Comedy is always chancy, but then so is profundity. Sometimes one winds up as the other. Illness is, of course, to be avoided, and also megamalls and meetings involving vice presidents. But writing is not painful, no more so than a round of golf. "--Garrison Keillor
