I like the idea of LISP, I not only aced the SICP class back in college but tutored it, too. I get it. And I wouldn't use a LISP for the majority of the work I do these days, it's just harder to work with than imperative code for a lot of normal, boring business use cases. You can write imperative code in a functional style when you have to, it's a lot harder to get the imperative advantages from a purely functional language.
I don't know... it still looks like the future today. Genera  was able to do things I can't do even with a lot of effort nowadays with my language/IDE/tooling.
