Over the past few years I have built up considerable expertise in the uncertain art of keeping my juggling-act company afloat above bankruptcy, though it has become more and more difficult now that the chamber of commerce has noticed how far our balance sheet has deviated from normative financial figures. Of course the bankers noticed it long before that, they are like the yellow canaries in a black coal mine, which is when they put the squeeze on.

Why am I telling you this, gabriel?, since it seems so far from the concerns that you voice - maybe because they are so far, yet near at the same time. As one gets older, ones needs evolve, one has a family to feed, and the friction of life becomes so much greater, and wears down one's efforts, ones ability, to do things outside the money earning box.

So being young is the ideal time to be one's own bench test. University (at least a good one) is a wonderful place to be in contact with other creative spirits.

I have learnt that one must be careful about matching one's projects to one's solutions. Starting a company seemed the best way to assure the control of my creative destiny. But in a cut-throat market world in shitty economic times, one spends more time on management, commercial issues, keeping the money-mongers satisfied.

Personally, I would love to "throw it all away", the bother of business and the wasted hours, just do my art and my activism, but this is not realistic.
