People give one another things that can't be gift wrapped.
A desert is a place without expectation.
Time is change; we measure its passing by how much things alter.
Responsibility is what awaits outside the Eden of Creativity.
The creative act is not pure. History evidences it. Sociology extracts it. The writer loses Eden, writes to be read and comes to realize that he is answerable.
