The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States

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.

This is a picture of two statues that overlook Baltimore's Hopkins Plaza.


On this bright and sunny Labor Day, I’ve come to the conclusion that the internet for autistics like myself, is a lot like sign language is for the deaf. The internet has given us a powerful mode of communication that no other generation of autistics has had before.

I can not begin to fathom what my life would be like without it. I imagine that if the internet were not invented I would probably be still living at home with my father. I would not have even considered the possibility of pushing forward with a career in art.

I would probably be still living a very sheltered life. OK, well....I’m still living a sheltered life but at least now I can quickly research things on the net before weighing the pros and cons of trying something new.....

I felt the same way about the Yoko protestors. I never ever heard of anyone pickiting her. I mean she's 70 years old and John was so in love with her. But it was fun talking to them.
