I always liked David Byrne, and he's right.

The objects displayed here are original and fun Larry
Larry Bliss: Byrne has some of the most original and witty lyrics in rock music. Glad you like the pic.

Some great shots of gears and propellers in the park.

As to David Byrne's quote. Most people just start in a job - and maybe retire in it, because it makes life possible. One can learn to be good at your job and because of that starts to like what you are doing. What most people don't like are the setbacks that can happen in business or any job for that matter.
Larry Bliss: It is true that people can come to enjoy their job. After all, money is necessary. I think Byrne is speaking of work you enjoy so much it doesn't seem like work. smile
I would love to make one and already have a spinning arrow that I basecoated and year to paint.
Larry Bliss: I would love to see it.

the red white blue strips give it a Dutch or French look, Larry.
Larry Bliss: Maybe it is a salute to those nations. smile
Very few people get to work at something they love
Larry Bliss: Unfortunately. Now that I am semi-retired I do a part-time job that I have come to appreciate. My real work is making pictures and writing, which are great fun for me.
David Byrne is right! Many years ago I worked for a guy who told me, "If it isn't fun, find something else!" I've had fun ever since smile
Larry Bliss: Good for you!
