The Week’s End

As we move into the week’s end, think on this:

Pottery

Honor the labor that you put into realizing any desired product. If the end result is not to your liking, don’t abandon it. Give it a proper ‘burial’. A negative assessment or a dismissal of your work could turn Frankensteinian. In creating her story, perhaps this is Mary Shelly’s warning to her readers, even to her world. You know the story: A scientist named Dr. Frankenstein devotes his time to study how to create life; then, he gives over every hour, every stream of energy, and all of his mental capacities to realize his dream. The experiment works, but he casts aside his creation as you would a Dixie cup at a frat party. What is worst, he calls it a monster. Well, that monster not only lives but it wreaks havoc on the community through murder. It stalks his ‘father’ until the very end. It’s just a thought, but had he stopped to call his labors ‘good’ and put away his product nicely, there might have been a different outcome.

So, honor your labors. They come from you. Why disrespect them? That you even have the wherewithal to labor is a gift from the Universe.

“And God saw that it was good!”
~ Genesis 1:10

Happy Week’s End ~ to all of you!
