hitting a different note

I've posted more than a few complaints on this blog about the nature of my work. Actually I got into a mild dust-up today with a publisher over a recipe index -- and under typical circumstances, I might address it because the disagreement says something about the quirks of developing that particular type of product and about what titles really mean and what function they serve.

But not today. I'm just going to report being thankful that work continues to come in.

Over and out.

Well, now. That's a commendably Zen approach to take. Or is it Taoist? I get so confused.

Interesting that your response to my comment regarding Andrew Wyeth on your blog addresses the importance of titles and their influence, exactly the topic (or one of them) that I was avoiding here.

I'm a title person. I don't like to write them, mind you, but I put a great deal of credence in them.
