I’ve had a uniquely obnoxious and oft-debilitating inherited genetic disorder all my life. It doesn’t show on the outside, so people don’t realize I struggle with it. And most often, I don’t tell them because people only want you to listen to them. They don’t want to hear you’re sick, or what you struggle with daily. And worst of all, if they do know, th...

Résumé
Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful,
Nooses give,
Gas smells awful.
You might as well live.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope

“Why is it no one sent me yet one perfect limousine, do you suppose? Ah no, it's always just my luck to get one perfect rose.”

Ira Glass
“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
Ira Glass

“Choosing with integrity means finding ways to speak up that honor your reality, the reality of others, and your willingness to meet in the center of that large field. It’s hard sometimes.”

Stan Law A belated thanks for choosing me to be among your friends, Natalie. It may interest you that my book Marvin Clark—In Search of Freedom in now a matching FREE download on Amazon Kindle. This is not a thriller, but you'll probably be well amused. Enjoy it while you can. (A little review on Amazon wouldn't hurt either!)
