Unpublished. Pollock dries dishes after Krasner washes them in the kitchen of their farmhouse. Krasner, a talented abstract painter in her own right, put her career on the back burner during their decade together in the Long Island house in order to support her husband’s career. After his death, she began painting in the barn that had been his studio. By the time she died in 1984, at age 76, she was finally recognized for her own work and not just as Mrs. Jackson Pollock. Today, the farmhouse and barn studio comprise a museum devoted to the study of the married painters’ working lives.

Because if this is gonna be a Christian nation that DOESN’T help the poor, either we’ve got to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that he commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition — and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.

I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process — an integral function of the universe.
