The sandwich maker principle…

Across from where I work is a really good caf√©. The staff are incredibly friendly and the food – really good, unpretentious fare. It has to be. It’s a blue collar, industrial suburb where real people work. I was talking to one of the ladies in the cafe. I was buying coffee and she was making sandwiches. She loves – and I mean loves - making sandwiches. She told me nothing makes her happier. I stopped and thought about that – I’m still thinking about that. Is that the key to life? Doing the simplest task yet loving it with a passion? Can it be that simple? And how do you find something you love so much? Or does it find you? Or do some people just never find it? I dunno…
