I told a very rich man he was worthless today. He laughed hysterically as if this could not possibly be true. He does not understand basic values. As such he is the poorest person I have ever met.
He has managed to get himself into a spot of bother here, as he does not understand the culture he has been living in for over a decade. He believes that people are taken in by his bonhomie. He is mistaken.
So that is how I have spent the last few weeks, providing friendship for someone who does not understand what it is, and providing free artwork for someone who neither understands nor values it. I have wasted time I could have spent on something worthwhile. I was mistaken.
Dem’s the breaks. In the meantime Little Shiva’s piece is going very well.
