As I mentioned in last week’s article “Suffering Is Optional” I run on the treadmill a few times a week. The other day I was trotting along and noticed that the man behind the front desk reached up to the ceiling over the counter, took down a ventilation duct cover and cleaned off the build up of dust that had quietly accumulated there.
