I thought it was channeling Bob Dylan...

Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief
it takes a thief to catch a thief
whom does the bell toll for love
it tolls for you and me.

Children? Better scene and not herd. I could never figure out how to

to work 3 weeks after giving birth.) The old conundrum! which is
worse? the tyranny of the boss or the tyranny of the breadwinner?
Work is worse. I turned 51 in sept, raised a Catholic, can you
believe it? since I'm now the most confirrmed atheist on the planet.
Still playing out the string I picked up in March 1974 at the Marcel
Duchamp retrospective. This made academia anathema. What was it
Nietzsche said? We knowers are unknown to ourselves, all we want to
do is bring something back to the hive, real life is beyond us. No
academia, no corporata, no real art career, am I just a kept man
then? I did crummy janitorial type jobs for awhile, post office,
serious loafing, and then worked in libraries so I could raid the
collections for gold. Now I tune pianos. I make films, haven't had
one screened recently, last one was in '99 I think. Painter. poet,
indian chief--There's still a review of my painting show online at from '99. No MFA, or I'd be afraid my art would look
