Real joy comes not from ease or riches
or from the praise of men,
but from doing something worthwhile.
-- Wilfred Grenfell
And what could be more worthwhile than providing a venue for others to display the labors of their love? The whole world is indebted not only to those that make, but those that share and appreciate what has been made.
It keeps us connected.
That's what Rachel at Rayela Art has done
in putting together the TAFA Market.
Few people understand the beauty of the handmade better than she, and few people would have what it takes to put something like this together while simultaneously balancing all the other responsibilities inherent in inventing and running TAFA (not to mention her numerous creative pursuits!).
(Well done, Rachel.)
