My friend Sam has this quote from James Michener in his Hawaiian home on the hillside above Waimea. His playful life disrupted mine more than a decade ago. I didn’t know it was possible to live an integrated experience. Go ahead, attempt to make a distinction between work and play, love, and God. “He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does.”
I am an apprentice in the art of living.
“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.”-James Michener
