Some People Are Not the Right Customer

There’s an old Chinese curse that says, “May you live in interesting times.“

There is no doubt we are living in “interesting” times. The digitization of information has thrown many industries for a loop. X-rays are now read half a world away. Newspapers struggle to develop a new business model. And the neighborhood bookstore is getting hit from all sides.

Take the Time

I’ve been corresponding with my long time friend, the photographer, painter, printmaker Randy Sager. She was lamenting how difficult it is to find time to replenish. I empathized and then I wrote, “Take it”. Take the time. The work will be there when you get back and you’ll be better able to handle it.
