I remember reading this statement
: If I can't sweep, with what I've learned, then it wasn't worth learning!...and I love this, lol

Hi Gillena,

Not about your work...I love it as always but it reminded me of a Kahlil Gibran quote...and I am sure you and all else will like it,

so taking the liberty to quote it here:

Said a philosopher to a street sweeper, "I pity you. Yours is a hard and dirty task."

And the street sweeper said, "Thank you, sir. But tell me what is your task?"

And the philosopher answered saying, "I study man's mind, his deeds and his desires."

Then the street sweeper went on with his sweeping and said with a smile, "I pity you too."

Its a pity that we throw litter on the roads....But, Thanks to nature, its wastes can be recycled,

But looking at it street sweepers need their job too...

Then there's a real story -- I had an English Professor who would sweep the lane right upto the mainroad, putting it in all in the litter-box saying, she can't afford to have a rebirth as a street sweeper....thats Indian Karmic mindset...we, i mean Indians, have it in us, I guess :)


I have not been commenting, because I love your work, and you know that...But this I thought would be interesting,
