An Absorbing Practice

“I posit that life is better when you possess a sustaining practice that holds your desire, demands your attention, and requires effort … Pursuing any practice seriously is a generative, hardy way to live in the world. You are in charge (as much as we can ever pretend to be—sometimes like a sea captain hugging the rail in a hurricane); you plan; you design; you labor; you struggle. And your reward is that in some seasons you create a gratifying bounty.”          Janna Malamud Smith
