My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a firm believer in friendship, or to borrow a phrase from a friend, in family of choice. Many of my friends have commented over the years at how much work I put into maintaining friendships. My longest running friendships dates back to January, 1964 and June, 1967. My friends are both male and female, and range in age from the late seventies to the early twenties. The most recent addition started out as a young girl whom I began mentoring when she was fourteen, and whom I helped get into the Savannah College of Art and Design. I have coming to appreciate one benefit of growing old: that the children of one's friends can grown up to become one's friend.
I believe that when you eating by yourself, you are just eating, just nourishing the body. Dinning, that social thing one does with family, friends or with business associates, feeds the soul.
I believe that laughter should not be at someone else's expense. I am a bit verbose/long winded... a few years ago I was asked by one of the two eldest children of a friend, what was the difference between being Christian and Catholic? After falling to simplify it down to… all poodles are dogs but not all dogs are poodles. I launched into a forty-five minute history of Christianity, which just left them confused. So I tried again, and the third was the charm, it succeeded. After apologizing for the overly long explanation, the kids laughed, I laughed, and then the eldest, Joseph said he expected a longwinded but interesting explanations from me and didn’t mind. I laughed even more. The true key to laughter is the ability to laugh at yourself and which will then allow you to be able to laugh with others.
Having brought up the subject of dogs, I would like to talk about cats. I am allergic. Cats are a deal breaker. Three years of exposure during my marriage, left me with an case of adult onset asthma and proclivity for bronchitis, sinus infections and upper respiratory infection from the common cold. Dogs on the other hand , I have no problem with; although I might note I prefer them larger rather than smaller. Currently, I have no pets although sometimes I dog sit for a friend.
As "job" indicates "artistic", I am just that. I am an Illustrator, Graphic Designer, Printmaker, Painter, Exhibit Designer, and Teacher. I have dabbled in photography and sculpture; and have even written some... some fiction, some non-fiction and reviews: books, films and theater. Prior to the artistic/creative/expressive fields, I have a, what a friend referred to as a "boilerplate" list of experience in the medical field, retail, and even light industrial.

BOOKS: I predominately read escapism literature. The older I get the increasingly disappointed I am with the world outisde of novels. I read fantasy, science fiction, mysteries, and thrillers; occasionally horror but usually the older stuff from the sixties and further back. I have also read historical novels, even a romance or two, and over the years occasionally mainstream and bestselling novels. Oh, and comic books, just about anything; although I have to confess with comic books the art comes first before the story. Also books on Art and Art History, Biography, History, Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology, Urban Planning, and Natural History/Ecology/Wildlife.
MUSIC: Pop from the 30s through the 80s; Western, Country Western, and New Country; Classical; some World Music; Celtic; Classical and Early Jazz; Ballad, Folk and Filk Music. I don't listen to Rap, Reggae or Heavy Metal. And I seem to prefer to listen to woman rather than men.
FILMS: Romantic Comedies, Comedies, Action-Adventure, Suspense, Silent, Old B&W, Old Horror, Chick Flicks, Foreign Films, Art Films, and Animation and Cartoons (Traditional, Computer, American and Foreign). NO Splattter flicks.
