On Duty and Joy

I slept and dreamed that life was joy,
I awoke and saw that life was duty,
I acted, and behold duty was joy.
--Rabindranath Tagore, winner of the 1913 Nobel Prize for Literature. You can view a brief video about his life and accomplishments here.

Joy is my middle name, and I consider writing to be a duty and a joy. Thanks for sharing this, John!

Nice! Thanks for adding that, Alanna. No mystery at all why your parents would have chosen that name for you, because that's no doubt what you brought them simply by being born.
