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.

Should I Stay, or Should I Go?

Should I Stay, or Should I Go?

So, here's my conundrum: Those of you that know me, know how much I like to reply to everyone who comments on my posts. But I haven't been able to do that for ages. Yay, I have work! ... but it means I don't have the time that I used to have ... and I feel SO bad when all of you take time to give thoughtful comments and I never find a moment in the day to get back and reply.

I'm still active in the "G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers"; helping to create mentorships and keeping that free program going. I'm still helping people on a daily basis, because I get to be an Arcanum Master, which helps me earn a living finally. However,  I hate giving anyone the feeling that I don't care, so I've just not been posting. I miss going through the stream and commenting on all of your posts, too!  Should I still post, even if I can't reply like I used to?

To all of you wonderful friends, whom I've met here on G+, and those I've yet to meet. I think on you often. I smile when I read your comments. I still care. I thank those of you who haven't given up on me.
