The Craft of the Heart

One of the images that I’ve always liked is this idea of craft of the heart as opposed to say just some kind of experience that you get.  In the writings about craft, there’s this common number that keeps coming up.  If you want to develop a craft, it takes 10,000 hours.  So, if you want to develop the craft of the heart, it can’t be a kind of weekend affair.  It obviously has to be a lifetime affair.
