“”If Paganini, who uttered his soul through the strings of his violin, spent three days without practising, he lost what he called the stops of his instrument, meaning the sympathy between the wooden frame, the strings, the bow, and himself; if he had lost this alliance, he would have been no more than an ordinary player. Perpetual work is the law of art, as it is the law of life, for art is idealized creation. Hence great artists and perfect poets wait neither for commission nor for purchasers. They are constantly creating—to-day, to-morrow, always. The result is the habit of work, the unfailing apprehension of the difficulties which keep them in close intercourse with the Muse and her productive forces.”
–From Balzac’s “Cousin Bette” (1846).

Garbage, recyclables & yard trash must be placed at curb no later than 6 a.m. Palm Coast reminds all residents to place their garbage, recyclables and yard trash at the curb no later than 6 a.m. on their scheduled pickup day. The city’s garbage collection contractor, Waste Pro, has recently changed the routing of some routes. With the summer heat, the re-routing will allow employees to focus on heavier volumes earlier in the day. With that, customers may see a change in the time of day their garbage is normally picked up. However, the days of collection (Monday-Thursday OR Tuesday-Friday, with yard trash on Wednesdays) is not changing. Issues with garbage service can be reported at that website, or by calling Customer Service at 386-986-2360.
