Needs more work! is the thought that woke me this morning. It's been awhile since I've been in the routine of writing, and yesterday's blog post helped me realize that I need to regain some story telling discipline. I wanted to tell the story of unwittingly taking a class from one of the most important artists in America -- and secondarily convey that if you are only ever going to take one art class, that would probably be the one to take -- and thirdly how I feel that I squandered that opportunity in my youth (but not as bad as the other wretches in the class -- they were horrible, truly).
How it read was
that I'm focused on having validation for doing creative work -- which
I'm not (if I were - I wouldn't do much creative work at all!). I
decorated the house before I built it (so to speak ). So the post is in revision - and if it improves or at least does a better job conveying what it should -then it may be allowed back on this blog!
