The Value of Home Arts


The ordinary arts we practice every day at home
are of more importance to the soul
than their simplicity might suggest.

-Thomas Moore

This quote is on my kitchen calendar for July. I can't stop thinking about it. What are we missing out on in this day and age where the art of the home had been replaced by the art of the car, the office, the take-out restaurant, the day care, the drive-thru and the maid?

I really want to see and feel his meaning deeply. I want to know the value of ordinary arts to the human soul, to my soul.
