The musings of a cantankerous over the hill greasemonkey who, though already old, is rather old for his age. I'll bust greasy knuckles out in the garage or argue politics with anyone who will stand for it....

Peace of Mind

"Peace of mind isn't at all superficial,really," I expound. "It's the whole thing. That which produces it is good maintenance. What we call workability of the machine is just an objectification of this peace of mind. The ultimate test is always your own serenity. If you don't have this when you start and maintain it while you are working you're likely to build your personal problems right into the machine itself." ~Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
