My favorite Bucky Fuller quote is “when you are doing what Nature intended for you to do, Nature provides”.  I really want to believe this is true, but I’m just having a hard time believing that Nature wants me to write software.  When I deviate from the authoring of bits and and bytes, Nature does not provide much of anything in the way of positive feedback.  Yet when the digital  objects stream out of my conciousness onto my monitor,  the natural order of things seems to feed on the energy, providing me with near fiscal abundance.

Zombieland and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs have outgrossed Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story, literally and figuratively.  Is Nature discouraging Michael from making his kind of documentary or is it just Human Nature doing what comes naturally, seeking escape?

I love to write fiction.  It feels very natural.  It is so unlike the unforgiving structured sameness of authoring specific instructions to a machine.  On the other hand, edits and rewrites are equally unforgiving and tedious.  Editors and proof readers are just another form of QA Tester.  BUT when your finished product DELIVERS magic to the end user, there is nothing quite so satisfying.

Whether applying my authoring skills to a novel or skillfully authoring a novel application I am finding that I can love this work that nature intends for me to do and thoroughly enjoy what it provides.
