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.

This morning I was unsure if I got up on time because I was still feeling slightly disoriented. I know that this was all caused by being thrown off of my regular sleep schedule on Saturday. In the end I did get up at the right time. However, when I got over to the Timonium light rail stop I transferred over to the wrong bus. It took several stops for me to take notice that the bus was headed in the wrong direction. Despite this set back I was on time for work.
I’m sorry to report that yesterday I did not go to the movies. The main reason was that I was sleepy. Oddly enough, I did make it over to church. I think I went to church primarily out of force of habit. Throughout the service I was fighting to stay awake. I didn’t really come to until the end when the service ended with this guy on guitar singing John Lennon’s, Imagine. I recall thinking to myself, WoW! This is so cool! Here I am sitting in church listening and singing along to a John Lennon song. Heck, not any old John Lennon song but Imagine! CooL!
Then after the service still feeling sleepy and disoriented I walked over to the annual Baltimore Book Festival. Walking did not do anything for making me feel fully awake. I felt as though I was walking through a dream. The only thing I recall about the festival is that there was a person walking around dressed like the cartoon character from the The Dummies Guide To.... books. I have to say it felt a little disconcerting walking around seeing a person with a giant triangle face and two bulging eyes walking about. Also at the Book Festival I saw my childhood neighbor Quinton. This marks the second time this year that I have run into him.
The one thing I surmised while walking through the Book Festival was that I desperately needed sleep. So I promptly went home and fell immediately to sleep. I slept for a very, very long time. I woke up once and that was 4 am the next morning. When I woke up I was feeling disoriented. I wasn’t sure what day it was, where I was, or if I had to go to work. This of course brings us back to the beginning of today’s entry..... Perhaps, I will be feeling a little more sleep oriented tomorrow.
