Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral
Frank Lloyd Wright
I just spent a few minutes on the phone with a student who did not understand her homework
By the time we hung up, the tears had turned to laughter and she was pressing on.
I brought my dog a bowl of fresh water
and received a thumping wag in return
I had a chance to congratulate a colleague on a job well done
And pray for people who do not even know that I care
Today, I did not get sworn in to the Senate
I did not try to pass a national budget.
In fact, in Wright's words- I built a lot of chicken coops
Works for me!
and that's poetiquejustis
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might
