A-Z Day 26


“Before enlightenment, chopping wood and carrying water. After enlightenment, chopping wood and carrying water.”

I’m a slow learner.

But eventually, I get where I need to be.

Like bike racing.

Like writing.

And like everything else I do.

I don’t know much about enlightenment, but I can chop wood and carry water.

And so that’s what I’ll do. Every day.

Do the work.

Chop wood. Carry water.


Work is enlightenment.
