This Detroit mural captures many feelings of our epoch. How can our minds be free, while we are so busy working, reading emails, texting, surfing the web, or shopping on-line? What kind of work occupies our minds? When we are not working, what kind of noise fills the gap in our minds?
What kinds of work would we choose to do, if we were truly free to decide where to apply our minds, bodies, and spirit?
Detroit is a special place, where questions like this are necessary and significant.
