Yesterday, on my drive into work, I saw this sign:
I know that sign was trying to sell me something, but I read that sign differently. I realized I could be at work now if
- I had left much earlier or
- I was working on other things, like solving world problems, while I was sitting in traffic.
Actually, I AM at work now. I’m working on this blog. My thoughts, which go everywhere — into the past, the present, and the future — are at work, also. Sometimes that thinking work is exhausting, especially when I get worked up. I’m working on that.
Are you at work now? You could be.
Let’s see if my latest photos work today.
All those photos were taken at work except for one, which was taken on my way into work. It doesn’t take much work to notice those Slinkies at work in my office. People at work bring me slinkies because I work hard at explaining that human progress is like a coil (including a slinky). We work on similar problems over and over again, seemingly going in circles. No matter how hard we work, it can feel like we’re not making progress. However, if we work on it, we’ll notice that we’re always moving up. Each time we work our way around over similar territory, we have more wisdom and knowledge. It takes work to incorporate that wisdom, but I’m working on the belief that it’s possible.
If you want to work your way to another post about how human progress works which I worked on during the first week of this blog, that works here.
My cats are at work now
… but neither of them plays piano. Yet.
Maybe Oscar’s working on that.
You could be at work now on a comment, you know.
Working thanks to Mark Winkler, slinkies, cats, pianos, and humans, especially those who are working on reading this blog, here and now.
