The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

Today, the bus was on time. However, the light rail was ten minutes late. I hope that the train’s lateness doesn’t make me late. My stomach is growling and I can’t wait to get to work so that I can eat my breakfast.
Yesterday, I almost had several panic attacks. The bus on the way home was getting crowded. The more crowded the bus got the more panicked I became. So I decided to get off the bus and take the light rail downtown. Before I knew it the Timonuim light rail stop became crowded with people heading to the Orioles game. THE ORIOLES GAME! I had no idea that they played on Wednesdays!
It was like a situation that would not let me go. I left a crowded bus for a possibly crowded train! To calm myself down I tried in vain to read a book. The activity was useless. My mind kept wandering back to the crowd. Counting each person, wondering if there would be enough room.
I don’t understand how this could have happened! Yesterday, at the same time the bus wasn’t the slightest bit crowded. One thing I’ve noticed about the #8 line is that they come when they damn well feel like it.
Yesterday’s, Interesting Site: I saw a man wearing a t-shirt with Bush and Cheney on it under the headline, Dumb and Dumber. I wanted to ask him where he got it but I thought the better of it. What if he started yelling at me or something? One thing’s for sure I have to get my hands on that t-shirt!
Today, I’m wearing a royal blue short sleeved top with black pants and Payless black shoes.
