Splash du Jour: Tuesday

In what does the alienation of labor consist? First, that the work is external to the worker, that it is not a part of his nature, that consequently he does not fulfill himself in his work but denies himself, has a feeling of misery, not of well-being… The worker therefore feels himself at home only during his leisure, whereas at work he feels homeless.

-- Marx, Economic and Political Manuscripts (1844) --

Wow -- I can so relate! I appreciate my job, but I sure do not love it.
After a long weekend of PROFOUND leisure, oh, it is so difficult to get back to this today…

Have a great Tuesday y'all!
