Odd and precious.................

      I bet I'm beginning to make some parents nervous - here I am, bragging about being a droupout, and unemployable, and about to make a pitch for you to follow your creative dreams, when what parents want is for their children to do well in their field, to make them look good, and maybe also to assemble a tasteful fortune.

      But that is not your problem.  Your problem is how you are going to spend this one odd and precious life you have been issued.  Whether you're going to live it trying to look good and creating the illusion that you have power over people and circumstances, or whether you are going to taste it, enjoy it, and find out the truth about who you are.
