Simple tasks

The simple tasks — pouring coffee, cleaning, baking cookies, answering the telephone, errand-running — all could be labeled “trivia” . . . but the truly heroic is hidden in these simple tasks in everyday living.

Unity between my spiritual ideals and my concrete moment-to-moment actions.  The small things of each day must be the vessels that carry my ideals.
