These are the things that I wish you understood:

why my friends are so important

why I must travel without you

how much I need you to travel without me

why I work so hard to separate my personal life and professional life

how I need alone time

ow much I need to read to shut off my head at night

how much I need to write

how much I need other creative ventures

how much I miss grad school

how you canít miss me if I donít go away;

and none of it means I love you any less.

Jesus taught, "You can not serve both God and Mammon." He referred to earthly treasures. Early Christians personified Mammon as a false god of greed, however there is no evidence of such a deity prior to Jesus' time.

What is money? It is not a demon, but power. Wise men have always taught we should prefer the power of wisdom and good example, rather than of currency. We cannot live in this world without money. It is food on the table, social security, a resource to the artist. It is a tool in creative hands, a weapon in careless hands.

I was raised within the pop cult.

I quote Simpsons with deadpan so practiced, so innate; I reference fifty television shows, movies and books daily. My childhood was a lateral view of america through the eyes of a million acerbic writers, poets, rabble-rousers. I heard about that other stuff, Rockwellian values, but not as realism. Those were fairy tales, like news reports of vast riots and murders iíd never met.

Is it any wonder that pop culture is its own language? Weíre bilingual, people like me. We speak Old American and Pop-Adaptation. Like computer language but practically comprehensible.
