THE FACTORY | THIS WEEK 2.10.2014 – 2.14.2014

Ari Weinzweig’s newest book, A Lapsed Anarchist’s Approach to Managing Ourselves, arrived a few weeks ago and our staff began a study group to work through Ari’s words of wisdom. This quote from page 27 is a favorite:

“In a little book that might well be considered a minor masterpiece, Life is a Miracle, Wendell Berry explains the art of self-management. ‘Good artists,’ he argues, ‘are people who can stick things together so that they stay stuck. They know how to gather things into formal arrangements that are intelligible, memorable, and lasting. Good forms confer health upon the things that they gather together. Farms, families, and communities are forms of art just as are poems, paintings, and symphonies. None of these things would exist if we did not make them. We can make them either well, or poorly; this choice is another thing that we can make.’”

Hoping that you will all have a great week and that we will see you soon,
