Do What You Desire

……Great career advice from Alan Watts.

“The only way to become a master of something is to really be with it. And then you’ll be able to get a good fee for whatever it is. Somebody is interested in everything and anything you can be interested in you’ll find others interested in it. It’s absolutely stupid to spend your time doing things you don’t like in order to spend to do things you don’t like.”

Happy Holidays from our garden!

We took this shot on our front porch on Christmas Day in Chiang Mai with a bit of our www.urbanmicrogarden.org in the background. Beaffin held surprisingly still and we just propped the Thai language sign against his chest as he stared off toward the front gate. Lu Wei’s and my signs both say “love makes a family” and Beaffin’s sign says “I love my family,” which was the Thai grammatical structure I felt most comfortable writing.
