Textile factories are bustling again in the United States, but the savior was automation, meaning few of the jobs lost since the ’90s came back with the plants.

Great resolutions to remember before adding anything to the closet.
I feel like everyone should know how to make something well. The medium isn’t that important, but there’s a unique sort of pride in being able to behold and then enjoy something that you made with your own hands, whether it’s a wooden spoon, a hand-bound book, a bowl of chili, or a bicycle frame.
But this much I know. I do not allow myself to be overcome by hopelessness, no matter how tough the situation. I believe that if you just do your little bit without thinking of the bigness of what you stand against, if you turn to the enlargement of your own capacities, just that itself creates new potential. And I’ve learned from the Bhagavad-Gita and other teachings of our culture to detach myself from the results of what I do, because those are not in my hands. The context is not in your control, but your commitment is yours to make, and you can make the deepest commitment with a total detachment about where it will take you. You want it to lead to a better world, and you shape your actions and take full responsibility for them, but then you have detachment. And that combination of deep passion and deep detachment allows me to take on the next challenge, because I don’t cripple myself, I don’t tie myself in knots. I function like a free being. I think getting that freedom is a social duty because I think we owe it to each not to burden each other with prescription and demands. I think what we owe each other is a celebration of life and to replace fear and hopelessness with fearlessness and joy.
