My friend James Melcher asked me,

“I wanted to send you this question that popped into my head….( yes
it’s regarding your life at the present moment)

What’s the Gift in the Chaos?”

And my words came easily, though maybe not confidently…

“I feel as though I have stepped out of the illusion of stability in order to gain freedom. The freedom to do what I want to do, and the way I want to do it. Call me crazy, but I feel that as long as we are productive, we can do anything and make a living from it. Good intentions leading into useful innovations.”
