Fate and Circumstances

And luck.

Anne Patchett wrote this morning in the Washington Post about creative influence.

It is about how one looks at their life, where they are, what connects one day to the other and how one extracts some kind of meaning out of the whole thing. Knowledge comes from making connections between unlike things.

How can my work about women’s lives come from trash?

Because trash is what I love, it is free and I can remake it in my own voice. It IS my voice. There is no difference between me and this trash.

Why Christine Lagarde?

Every morning I rise to the computer to see if there are actions taken by anyone to remind me of the world I used to know. I know how she attained her current position, Chairperson of the IMF. You might remember a little story about the former Chair who acted up with a hotel maid in NYC a few years ago, before the #MeToo movement. Even now, I can see this man in Court, in public, struggling to believe what was happening to him (which was his own fault). The way he sat in his chair before the judge said everything. He fell a long way. And Christine fell into her new job.

Recently, June 29th, Christine held her position against the grifters in America, the Trump family. Ivanka tried to elevate herself into a discussion between Macron, May, Trudeau and Lagarde. It did not go well and Lagarde was especially visual. She was my champion.

And so I documented her victory in my voice.

I just now read that today is the 230th anniversary of Bastille Day! See how this works?
