"Just because it will do it doesn't seem reason enough to stress things."
We need a paycheck.
Hershey, that's a powerful statement. Not many things in the last few decades have caused me to pause and think like what you just wrote.
It reminded me of when I was in my 20s and doing manual day labor with a bunch of other men. One day the boss came over and said something like, " You're certainly a hard working guy. You're a self-starter, you do good work and you get a lot done." and I said, "thanks", and he just sort of shook his head as he walked away and said I'd missed the point .
I've thought about him and what he said to me a lot since that time. It's taken half a century, but I think some understanding is beginning to creep in through the cracks.
