So, I'm a bit camera shy. But this is me. I want to say hello and can never help myself from making some sort of silly face.
Maybe you have been following for a while and know a lot about me. Maybe not. Let me just share some basics. I am 68 years old, now moving through my 69th year and I feel fine. I look older and I seem a bit slower but really if I don't look in the mirror I feel just about the same as always.
For me the most significant change in the years since I began this internet adventure is simply the way I look at things. And that's probably what I will begin talking about real soon. You can read more about me here.
Born and raised in New York, I attended School of Visual Arts from 1969 -1971 and studied Children's Book Illustration but never completed the program. I do not have a college degree. How it happened that I continued this creative life is just the way it might have happened or not.
Why am I here doing this?
I am doing this, I suppose, maybe just for the hell of it. I feel I'm in a different frame of mind that I was way back when I hosted my older classes. I'm curious about how that will change what I have to say about some of the same things.
I'm doing this because I enjoy doing this.
I'm doing this to give back,
I'm doing this because I can still do this.
I'm doing this because I need you to complete something for me.
I'm doing this to clarify my approach to the myth attached to creativity.
As you can see, folks are slowly drifting in.
Have a good weekend and I will officially begin on Monday.
Since I will be just going now you might just check in here at this point.
Let's start with Monday, Wednesday and Friday for now. I think once I get past my initial slow introductory posts, I will switch into what I call Diary Mode. That is a real-time everyday making sort of thing, no thought left unturned.
