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
Accept professions but don’t become them
Tied up in labor, we forget that the day job is the means of survival. Home is where the real sex happens, where we enjoy the liberty to play and rage into our work.
Doing the work we enjoy is the best use of our time. After all, more time is better than money.
Paradoxically, everything we don’t want to do feeds our basic survival. That’s why such priorities always feel somehow aslant.
