[9.2.21] Overnight

the medium is massaged
walls and malls
trade tantrums
nationalist conservatism


small parts must contain more. on viewing.
avoiding the laws, just to pay the in-laws

riding the craft carousel keeps them failures; stuck in 1st grade art.
it’s craft time: everyone get your brushes and aprons

important because craft isn’t  the commitment

don’t explore, don’t stretch beyond craft. they let craft fill them.
keeping them from certain failure beyond.

An example:
you must envy him — he has expensive possessions gotten on the cheap or free; ‘cause he is so clever, or has such successful admiring friends
He posts on Loud forums in sales brochure english, like a clerk without a law degree. maybe a low degree

Fear of not knowing becomes not doing; no mistake worse than that.
