about

Live the moment. Love the journey.

A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between work and play, labour and leisure, mind and body, education and recreation. One hardly knows which is which. One simply pursues their vision of excellence through whatever they are doing and leaves others to determine whether they are working or playing. To themselves they always seem to be doing both. It is enough for them that it is done well. — L.P. Jacks
