Bee on crocus

Being busy isn’t bad if what you’re doing is worthwhile. I snapped this photo on my way home from campus yesterday, after a full teaching day. “Full” is the word I prefer over “busy.” “Busy” suggests hectic commotion, and “full” suggests the satisfaction of having enough: the sense of accomplishment you feel at the end of a productive day, like a bee heavy with pollen flying home to its hive.
