thoughts on specificity.

Miz Rebecca and i were discussing the world today, as we are wont to do, and it came up that in some way i might be in the wrong job 'coz of my conflicting love of art and editorial, and what my skills are more appropriate for and all that, and it made me think about how specific the world is getting. there is so much information and redirecting to appropriate agents and targeted marketing and focus groups and all manner of that sort of insanity, so that we have less and less opportunity to do anything but that which we're supposed to do.
which is liberating in one way, and completely Terrifying in another.

so what did you come up with,
what exactly are you supposed to do?
and why is it Terrifying to be in the right place at the right time?

well, right now i think i'm supposed to do Exactly what i am doing, but perhaps with more efficiency and less distraction, and constant small reminders to take care of my own self and my own Loves.
as for terror, how can it Possibly Not be Terrifying to be in the right place at the right time?
i've been in alot of right places at right times and it hasn't gotten any easier, except in retrospect.
