| Do or do not.Trying is wishy-washy |
Love the painting and the story. Love working hard at what I do.Love pushing the boulder up hill but a boulder that doesn't weigh more than I am capable of pushing.

| Amazing |
I so needed to hear this. Every year it gets harder and harder but it becomes more exhilarating the further you go. Thank you for this wisdom and insight.

| Stones in my passway |
Although sometimes it feels more like passing a stone than pushing one, I appreciate the sentiment and especially love the Shaw quote you close with. It's all about the work, and usually quite evident when it's not.

| Stop whining, start pushing! |
This was such a GREAT perspective to read, and made me realize as I whine about the problems I have in writing a song, that I am only grunting as I roll the stone up the hill. And there IS an end....a song I wrote is finished and my manager promotes it, then I run or roll down the hill to find another boulder. It is a labor of love.

| Naked Hiking? |
Although Iím not always naked when I push the stone, nonetheless, I feel like Iím always pushing a stone up the hill. I feel I have to prove something---To sell my idea, to get others to help me push the boulder, either by partnering or investing. The difference is that there is no Zeus forcing me to do this. And once or twice in 30 years, I have let the stone roll down to the bottom....an abandoned project that didnít launch.
