We live in a culture where we are supposed to live at others' convenience. Where we are all supposed to dance to the same tune, march to the same drummer. Get excited about the weekend, even more excited about holidays. Want to be with our families, eat a big meal, and complain about indigestion afterwards.
Thanksgiving is a great example. The holiday preparation has taken over everything already a week ago. Everything. You drop life, you drop your projects and like a good soldier, you do the thing that is expected of you, talk about the holiday, think about the holiday, shopping, cleaning the house, inviting people or being invited...

People say I am prolific, and if you look at my results: I write a lot. But... but if you asked me what I want to be acknowledged for, I wouldn't say: for the number of articles. The number of articles only shows the tip of the iceberg.
