I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!
I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.
Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.
With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.
Let me begin with this:
I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.
You can begin by watching "The Myth of Talent" here:

An Epic Tale of an Epic #SeagullButtShot FAIL
It could happen to anyone … any #SeagullButtShooter, that is.
You see, we are trained to spot #seagullbuttsindisguise from a mile away!
However, even a WetWipe-carrying member of the #Gullarazzi has an off day.
This was mine.
Since this parrot was right next to the coast, it was perfectly logical for me to suspect that he was merely a #seagullbuttindisguise … granted, with an uncustomarily expensive costume. But, who knows, maybe the #seagullcontingent has started up a fund or something? What nefarious plots could they have cooked up to thwart our parodic antics on Saturdays?
I backed away quietly, with only this boring shot of my intended quarry's malignant mien.
If you've made it this far, please know that there is NO such theme as #SeagullButtSaturday. The following people, sometimes posting to the #FunniestNonthemeOnGplus , possibly have had better luck than I:
