We are doing more ourselves...

As a positive point in the current recession Time magazine notes we are doing more ourselves. These increases are as follows:
  • 19% Repairs and maintenance
  • 28% Housecleaning
  • 23% Lawn care and yard work
  • 21% Auto repairs
  • 15% Cutting hair.
The point is that economic decline is not always a bad thing. If we are led by circumstances to be creative, imaginative, productive, contributory of real value to the lives of others, the economy may suffer, but the character and culture of our communities and the quality of our lives will not.

The things that are of the greatest value cannot be measured. And so whether we are talking about economy or education, there are matters that transcend in importance the most prevalent view of things.

Make, fix and create...
