Sowing and Reaping
"And to write is to sow and to reap at the same time." Ellie Wiesel in Memoirs
Mr. Wiesel is an author and holocaust survivor. I'm reading his memoir and savoring each page. It's a book that asks for slow reading and I'm happy to do that. I respect him.
I wrote the above quotation into my Quote Book and have been mulling it over.
I think exercising (running, yoga, weight lifting, etc.) is a similar activity. And cooking, too.
We draw on past experience to further us in that activity. And every investment in a skill is paid out as we both sow and reap again, and again.
Starting is the hardest part.
