"The skills gap is a reflection of what we value. To close the gap, we need to change the way the country feels about work." ~Mike Rowe
On this Labor Day, I return to this smart testimony about the value of work, the skills gap, and our need to return to the reverence for a deeper meaning of vocation and skills. A powerful few minutes I’d highly recommend watching.
I love that sweet smell of decay that surrounds me in forests and woods. A kind of mulchy, deep, rich rot that has no connotation of death or ending, but rather of life and age. A sense of perpetual destruction and rebirth.
