    What a brilliant film, the end statement is quite correct. " there are those who shower before work" and those who " shower after work" and the world needs both of us, extremely profound.

    What a beautiful little film. There were so many things to love about it, but the look on the kids face who had crafted the wooden bowl said everything about the impact that Mr. Hollenbeck has on his community and the world. Very cool, thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for sharing this excellent look into the mind of a Doer. During my time on earth I've held both kinds of jobs. Sometimes I took a shower in the morning before work and then after working for a living I would come home and work until I needed a shower before going to bed.
    Working with your hands means working with mind and body. I think I share with Eric that my best times working are when I'm sharing what I've learned with others.
