The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

Dedication to One's Work

I've always admired people who possess a love for their work and display true dedication even in the face of real adversity. There are, of course, many inherently dangerous professions -- my own days as a naval aviator come to mind here -- in which adversity is encountered frequently. But I don't think I've ever considered the work of a neighborhood barber to be rife with danger. Then someone sent me a link to the video I've included below.

This Alaskan barber, Han Song, obviously takes in stride the dangers that accompany his profession. After the SUV crashes through the front window of his barber shop, he quickly surveys the situation, and then calmly returns to cutting his customer's hair.
