Nothing is worse than working somewhere where somebody tells you what to think, and I've spent the bulk of my life trying to avoid that sort of situation. I did manage to pick up a couple of degrees along the way, and out of necessity, I have put in a little bit of time driving a desk in a cubicle farm, but for the most part, I have worked with my body. Physical work frees the mind from the prostitution of spreadsheets and staff meetings. It also gives me the freedom of time to create. You can see (and read) some of my creations on my website, http://www.rafterspurgatorio.com/ There you will find short fiction, visual art, and a little dose of good old fashioned punk rock to keep the whole thing honest.
