Making meaning removes meaning

Making meaning removes meaning. What we make is what we want to make. The only supervisor is ourselves.

But we do need signals — something that tells us that we’re moving in the right direction.

“The muse has to know where to find you.”

Billy Wilder

Tied up in labor, we forget that the day job is the means of survival. So we play it safe and the pass on the real sex back at home.

Accept professions but don’t become them. Feel free to go home and rage into your work.

Doing the work we enjoy is the best life — after all, more time is better than money.

Everything we don't want to do feeds our basic survival. That's why such a priority always feels somehow aslant.
