Am I kidding myself that any of my work is new, or much more complicated than awesome? No way! What?
My creative efforts are performance art. The explosion is fleeting. People react to it. My art, however, is lasting.
I've been told I'm different. I don't fit in. I'm crazy. It's too much. People don't see the world the way I do. Why did you leave your job? Man, you really are crazy.
Well that's the way business is. Conform. Be comfortable - work for someone. Service is king. Where is your app? Be faster - work harder. Benchmark it. (Can't believe I said that). Use leverage. Take on debt. Profit is the mission!
Bankers like normal. Even the cheaters. They like normal so no body looks at what they are doing.
I hope you can break out. Beat the inequality. Be creative. Be unique. Charge ahead. Blow things up.
How do I see it? We have too much killing. Not enough fresh water. I explode art to help both.
Some folks think I am raging against our violent culture. If it makes you happy to think that way, well then, sure.
So, am I kidding myself that any of my gunpowder and fuse work is new, or much more complicated than awesome? No way!
