When the world out there is flapping, I go inside and I tighten my own game.

Call to Arms

When the lazy and the lost sit on their ar** at home when they could be working, when they could be experiencing the joy of creation and an earned wage and the country buckles and staggers because they do not….

I stop being a voyeur of their sin, and instead add hours of labour to my own day, create more this week than last, and plan more for next week than this.
