Vincent van Gogh, Noon - Rest from Work (after Millet)

Good Work, Fruitful Rest

Work: Issue Three

We are well aware of the degrading characteristic of much of today’s work among the new class of “knowledge workers,” alienated as they are from their bodies and their own products (and customers). We are also well aware of how much our “rest” has become passive, lonely entertainment. In this issue, we ask if the questions of work and rest don’t stand and fall together. If rest were real rest, what would that do for work? And how would good work open us up to more fruitful rest?
