True ease in writing comes from art, not chance. – Alexander Popespace
Sitting at a desk five (sometimes six) days a week and forgetting to pursue what makes one happy can make Jane a dull girl. Why a satirical song about the Clinton era was reverberating between two eardrums is slightly baffling.

We have created such a grandiose world to live in that when something does not go our way we get frustrated, sometimes even mad. Why do we have such a sense of entitlement about us? We have allowed ourselves to create an environment of instant gratification. The American lifestyle of ‘bigger is better’ has permeated everything we do. With the world at our fingertips – thanks to the internet – we have been conditioned to get what we want when we want it.
