Marshall Mcluhan used to like to write, "We don't know who discovered water, but we are pretty sure it wasn't the fish". He also liked to say, "When you surround a slow technology with a fast technology, the slow technology crumbles". This was back in the heady days of the 1960's when fragmentation hadn't really set it's hook. It seems to me that it took the internet to do that and here I sit, 4 months into Covid 19, about to turn 75 short years old. That old world is gone but people are still the same, The problems are piling up...
I can barely solve my own problems but it is good to be here, to learn to live. Ever since discovering art by trying to copy Mickey Mouses face when I was Knee high to a grasshopper, or doodling in my high school notebooks I have found comfort in trying to figure it out through art. It is fun but learning it wasn't always fun. In fact i gave it up over and over again, but the emptiness of not having it drove me back again until I reached a point, not of mastery,(never) but at least I could row the boat without going in circles.
