We interrupt your regularly scheduled poems to bring you a blog post about the beauty of doing something with no financial practicality. As the author states, we can't sell out, "because no one's buying." Beyond poetry, there's something to be said for doing something simply for the joy it brings. As someone currently not employed in my field (and each day wondering even more what my "field" really is), I can appreciate the author's point of view.
