The name of our proper connection to the earth is “good work,” for good work involves much giving of honor.  It honors the source of its materials; it honors the place where it is done; it honors the art by which it is done; it honors the hing that it makes and the user of the made thing.  Good work is always modestly scaled, for it cannot ignore either the nature of individual places or the differences between places, and it always involves a sory of religious humility, for not everything is known.  Good work can be defined only in partcularity, for it must be defined a little differently for every one of the places and every one of the workers on the earth.
