How It All Started


Once upon a time I was a student. A degree in Finance naturally led to a career in Air Force Rescue Helicopter maintenence. I got to travel to exciting exotic places like Vietnam and New Hampshire. After 5 years I became a student again. An Elementary Education degree naturally led to a career selling life insurance. I worked very hard. I got to meet a lot of interesting people, some of whom actually liked me. After 32 years I became a student once again. I still am a student. I will always be a student. I make things. Some of them are people. They talk to me. I listen. We have conversations. I am very happy now.

LOL!! = elementary education degree led to selling life insurance. I love your sense of humor Don.

I can hardly wait to be able to retire from my day job and be a student and create art full time like you. Soon . . . very soon.

Your sense of humor is deliciously, sarcastic. After the pleasure of sitting next to Susan at Art Unraveled...I believe you two are perfectly, delightfully.. matched.

I'm glad I read your first post
I'll 45 in september
and I feel the same:
I wanna be a student
in the matter of never stop to learn
whatever come to my sight.
An chilenean gypsy read the palm of my hand when I was a catholic monk,
she said very interesting, they alway said anyway, but I still remember what impress me more:" you're like a child inside and you never get over been surprise by new discovers" This was true!
