work and play

During anyone's working life, there may come a time when the saying hits home: "Stop and smell the roses."

But when working life recedes and there are nothing but roses, the old Zen saying begins to take on a meaning beyond thin-tea, logical certainty: "A day without work is a day without eating."

"Work is overrated." -- what a fine koan.
