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.

EYES WIDE OPEN
As I was taking photos of the exhibit I looked around and noticed that I heard a familiar voice in the air announcing some of the names of the dead. The voice was that of the Reverend John Manwell of the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore. After he finished reading his section of names I should have went over to him and his wife and said, “Hi!” Unfortunately, I became afraid that I might do or say something stupid.
Below I've posted additional photos of the exhibit.
WHAT I’M WEARING:
A man stands and stares at the symbolized devastation.
This is a photo of one of the many fields of shoes representing civilian victims of the war. This one memorializes the children who died.
Reverend John Manwell of the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore reads the names of fallen soldiers.
A teddy bear in the field of boots.
This is photo of the east side of the exhibit.
