“The ordinary arts we practice at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.”
At a time of great disruption in my life, I remember cherishing the time of folding clothes and washing dishes. It gave me purpose. It filled me with a sense of belonging.
“The essence of all beautiful art,” wrote Friedrich Nietzsche, “all great art, is gratitude.”
I am grateful every day. My hands create a blessing for my life.
