Here's a story for you:

Did the craft honor me like an honored thing? Was I trained by the best of the best of the best? NO! Commercial producers heard my work and concluded.

"That'll do!"

Will I continue to honor the profession and master my craft? No, never did and it was never my plan. Just trying to pay the bills a bit like a girl in a School Bus somewhere in ...

A bit like all the kids who made it in the IT revolution; they all started with nothing except a Harvard degree, connections and a trust fund.
