Faced with a repetitive, tedious task the goal is to find a way through it. Find the best system that works, find the flow of your work station. And find moments of beauty and delight when and where hey come. This is just the sunlight reflecting off the ripples of the water in a puddle created by washing produce crates for three and a half hours. It was a great moment.
Started my new job and during the summer I’m working as a job coach for special needs young adults. We are working at a local farm’s produce stand. It is hard work, and exceptionally exciting. I’ve spent days sorting Bing and Rainier cherries, recycling dirt, moving watermelons, and generally ensuring that my clients get a safe, effective, and realistic job experience and I’m proud to say it is successful and fun.
