I think I'm becoming obsessed with etsy.com. I find myself going there for no good reason and looking at people's sites, even though the last thing in the world that I have right now is actual dollars to support other people's art. You see, that's where the karma is supposed to come in; once my art starts making money I can send that money out into the world for other people. So in essence, I'm not really being greedy or selfish, because I want to do enough good in the world that I'm really more of a conduit. You know, as the wise man Tom Robbins (the best writer in the whole wide world) once wrote, "Human beings were invented by water as a device for transporting itself from one place to another". I don't know what the quote has to do with the money thing, but I'm sure that someone who isn't supposed to be making a gift for her mother right now can make a very worthwhile connection.
