"Good Work" November 02 2013

 

What we strive for ..

 

"Good Work" is work that involved the giving of honor and respect in all aspect of its execution.

In carrying out this "good work", one honors work's tools and materials, the place where the work is done, as well as the craft by which is completed.

Finally, honor is given to the product created by that work as well as whomever it is made for. It is work done with such integrity that makes us human, that connects us to the earth and all living things, and that sustains us through life's upheavals.
