Postcard from Up North

In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed: they must be fit for it; they must not do too much of it; and they must have a sense of success in it. ~ John Ruskin

(View across the bay from the Breakers, twilight. This moment of summer helps us not to do too much of our work, so that we might be happy in it.)
