Finishing up the final touches to the last chapter of my book on Peter - closing out our desk edit stage and moving towards page layout. Working at a McDonalds. French fries and bad coffee are not a good combination, if anyone was wondering.
"Thrift in itself is always a thirst to make all things thrive, animal, vegetable, or mineral; to make them prosper and produce; to prevent their being wasted, or, in other words, destroyed." -G.K. Chesterton
Fascinating article by Chesterton in which he argues that a person who is thrifty is one who wants to maximize things for them to thrive. A miser is one who is only concerned with saving money, not with helping things thrive, and therefore he wastes more than anyone else.
It's one of those rainy evenings that seems best suited for listening to jazz and reading G.K. Chesterton.
