“I think a person who takes a job in order to live, that is to say, for the money, has turned himself into a slave.” –Joseph Campbell quote

Jelly Rolls

      Whether you are a have or a have not, worrying about dough costs you peace of mind, and slaving for bread costs you freedom. On the other hand, not doing either of those things for dough, bread, beans, cabbage, lettuce or any edible currency, frees your mind to feast on priceless food for thought.

“All paid jobs absorb and degrade the mind.” –Aristotle  “All money is a matter of belief.” –Adam Smith  “God gave me my money.” –John D. Rockefeller

      Humanity’s most successful slackers poetically license us to believe that currency of the edible kind grows on the tree we nurture in our garden of love.

“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” –Rumi  “Nothing is really work unless you would rather do something else.” –James Matthew Barrie  “Do what you love and the money will follow.” –Marsha Sinetar 

      To put our money where our mouth is, so to speak, we practice what we preach by idling amid treasure beyond price (the selected quotes are rational anchors for the irrational-sounding ideas), and trust the gods of fortune to fill our bowl.

“I’m not a driven businessman, but a driven artist. I never think about money. Beautiful things make money.” –Lord Acton

      For the next 1:22 seconds, more or less, all proceeds from sales of the art series in today’s movie at (not to exceed three million dollars) will go to Jelly Roll Morton for the uncredited sound track.

“I have been robbed of three million dollars all told. Everyone today is playing my stuff and I don’t even get credit. Kansas City style, Chicago style, New Orleans style hell, they’re all Jelly Roll style.” –Jelly Roll Morton quote
