“Halfway between Comfort and Welfare”

Self Bio: If a dog that works cattle is called a cowdog, would a cow that worked dogs be a dogcow? Just something to think about. If a forward was located in the back of a book would it be called a backward, or would it still be a forward only backwards. Perhaps a backwards forward, which in football would be called a lateral. Now being a forward lateral this would be illegal and would not be allowed. A smart man once told me that if I couldn’t do anything right I shouldn’t do it at all, so basically for the better part of my life that’s what I’ve been doing, Nothing. A particular artist person who actually painted and did what folks consider real art once asked me what medium I preferred to work in. Now not being an educated and well cultured artist person, I proudly replied that I did not prefer working in medium at all, I much preferred working in slow rather than medium.
