  1. Amen

  2. Plenty of parallels here with photographers…

  3. Some say it’s worse than showbiz..

  4. Most All the Winning Horses that run in Horseraces
    are Alpha-type Horses or direct descendants of Alpha-type Horses..

    That is to say, they’re wild.. rebellious.. warring.. cunning..
    hyper.. risky.. fast..

    and perhaps even a bit dangerous at times..

    ..but ultimately they are warriors
    who’ll either win, or die trying

  6. I think it was my 3rd day on the job when I experienced my first passive aggressive political maneuvering attack by an editor.
