I read this fantastic quote taken from James Michener today that I wanted to share with others:

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.

I am often asked what I do for fun. Usually it is similar to what I do for work. My tasks are frequently my hobbies. This is not always the case but I hope it is usually the case! And while I would not say that those not fortunate enough to say this are not really living I do say that those of us who feel this way should not be treated as odd workaholic nerds.
