October 15--How Much Fun Is Your Work?

It is your work in life that is the ultimate seduction.  --Pablo Picasso

    This one caused me to look up the definition of seduction, and I'm going with "a tempting or attractive thing." Making art was Picasso's most attractive thing. 
    As I ponder this quote, I see two things. First, it is awesome good fortune if your work, what you do for your livelihood, is your most favorite thing to do. That would make it more play than work, and resourced with unbounded enthusiasm. Second, how cool, attractive, seductive it would be to hang around such a person who is living out their love through their work. Most folks do a job to support their fun in life. Picasso's work was his fun in life.
    Full-time on fun,

Picasso, "The Kitchen," Paris, 1948
