...if one doesn't have a life? What does one produce theory about, in that case? I am not much of a "theory" person, especially when I read what is written here by the people with academic careers. If I have "profound" thoughts, they are born of anger or passion or sublime experiences. My work over the past year in political media has come from feelings of extreme emotion and protest, rather than some logical, rational process.

As for the "contradiction" of family, it was very important for me to marry a companion with whom I could share professional complicity. We have been working together for over ten years in a company we created, so we share our creative work along with business hardship, and the kids, of course.
