Labor Day

Detroit Institute of Art

The bottom of this massive mural in the Detroit Institute of Art is a scene of  laborers toiling in various factory settings.  As you progress vertically up the mural, I see big machinery, then brightness, then abstractness.

I interpret this as progress, the result of hard work and dedication, but that’s about as far as my imagination can take me.  Whatever those two layers at the top represent is beyond me.

Don’t work yourself into a tight knot trying to figure it out.  Just enjoy the day.

Thought for the Day:  Without labor, nothing prospers.                                                                                                                                                 Sophocles
