I have a great Sun Ra quote somewhere, a good long rambling paragraph about how in these times you need to listen to the people who don't know what they're talking about. But I can't find it. So trust me.
Space is the place. There is a mortgage crisis, the stock market, which has never seemed real to me anyway, is bouncing all over. So what do I do? I sign a lease on a gigantic gorgeous artist studio. Good opportunities never seem to come at rational times.
I'm moving in this weekend and on Monday morning it will be my job. The more uncertain the world is, the more I prefer to have my fate in my own hands. And my own hands can't wait to set things up there and start creating great things.
