So...I send the gallery owner the names of the six sculptures I'll be taking to him next week. I suggest he look through the gallery and see what he thinks. Now, I haven't much reason of late to feel particularly good about my work. As far as the leadership of this tribe of cannibals are is concerned, I might as well have syphillis AND leprosy.
So, what's my surprise when I get this message...in caps no less...
FRED, THEY ARE ALL ABSOLUTELY GREAT.I LOVE THIS STUFF.IF YOU HAVE SOME READING
MATERIAL TO EDUCATE THE MASSES IT WOULD HELP BUT OTHERWISE SCREW THE POPULACE-THEY'LL
KNOW A UNIQUE PIECE WHEN THEY SEE IT.
+++I left out the name of course. Is this weird...is this a trick...a "plot"? What is this man so excited about...my dumb sculpture? The guy Peter the Rabid called a no-talent, and that was the kindest thing they said.
++++I hope they do well, naturally...but especially so Assyrians will come asking to buy, "at a discount"...family members too. Once I am okay by the white man...Germans especially...my own people will "cherish" me. To show how much they do, they can go pay three times the price at the gallery...or not. I don't care now, and I wont care then. I was doing THEM the favor...not the other way around.
