now hailed as artist---long used to the title, teacher, I am amazed
by the new recognition. Message me and I'll tell you how to see my
Finally a last update--- in the process of self discovery, I have
discovered a bit of kink in my personal makeup. Could use an
understanding friend re this.

I'm really good at creative things and putting things together to
