.As I warned, you, there's nothing happening here. But I was sitting, writing, and watching TV tonight (Sunset Boulevard, to be specific) when it struck me that Joe Gillis never did fall in love with Betty Schaefer. He just wanted to get back to work again.
There is a poetry to work, and I fear it has not found its Homer.
But, lemme think, Robert Heinlein was good at the joys of work, and so is Gene Wolfe. Any others that you can name?
