Update 22 July, 2020: Kill the messenger the salesperson must be the one that sells the self meaning the integrity sells off too to the thinking the nothing means nothing to the tune the going to the prairie fire means the many lose the chance to take to the bank too the children remain alive to the tune the giving to the woman the not important enough to be the paying attention too even teaches them to regard too the selfish way they tell their kids the adults are too self-serving to hear the warnings and issue instead the statements that tells the lies to the public.

Live the thought the others too issue the statements to ward off the feeling the not important meaning the way to the telling them to take to the bank the Gemmas the not the only things to take to the bank too the drawings the not heard to begin to the tune the Anthony too the not impressed by the talent but by the working to the max to the impressing upon the many artists that sell to the soulless ones the write too to the thinking the ghost writer the real author but the man the published best seller teaches too the bullshit sells.

Update 22 March, 2020: You are what you eat.

A salesperson is not required to be an artist.
But an artist, to be successful
Must be a salesperson first.
How many artists' talents go unrecognized because they are not born salespersons?

Usual Response: "Haven't you learned by now, Katherine? You CAN'T make a living as an artist. (Smirk)"
My Response: "Sure. But what if you can't make a living any other way?"

"(6) His disciples questioned him and said to him, 'Do you want us to fast? How shall we pray? Shall we give alms? What diet shall we observe?'
Jesus said, 'Do not tell lies, and do not do what you hate, for all things are plain in the sight of heaven. For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered.'"
- The Gospel of Thomas

Why do we only see value in people running on the economic wheel, gasping, earning paychecks, even if it means doing what you hate all day every day in and out?
