Pirates! A #Giveaway, and you can #WIN!!!

Argh!!! It's the birthday of French author Albert Camus, a Nobel Prize-winner who died in 1960 at the age of 46 in a car crash.

I was listening to a story about him on NPR this morning... well, actually, I tuned out half-way during the story (writer-brain!), but I caught a great quote before it was over.

It was all about Sisyphus, and Camu's essay on "The Myth of Sisyphus."

[Digression: I already knew about the myth from watching Party Girl, a movie that always reminds me of my great writer-friend (and former DJ) Matt "Rush" MacNish.]

Anyway, here's the quote:

"Meaning doesn't lie in the work, it lies in what you bring to the work." 

Nice, huh?

Note: Camus didn't actually say that, the NPR commentator said it, but I still liked it. Just doing a little writerly sharing. (Y'all know I'm a former English teacher, after all.)
