A future, made by hand...

Their Future, Made by Hand is an article in the New York Times describing culinary entrepreneurs, responding to the downturn of the economy by making meaningful lives for themselves and life more meaningful to others, by working with their own hands.

Two of my daughter's friends at Columbia University have started a small business, making truffles, as shown below. Their company is called Mimi Truffles.

The creative use of the hands is so compelling, we ought to do more with the hands in our nation's schools and universities. It would would make learning much more fun for all.

    Good for them! I have a special weakness for truffles, so it's probably a good thing I'm 400 miles away.
