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 was a very busy day. I had two activities lined up for today, yoga class and a show at Center Stage.
The Yoga Drawing class went great. I kind of felt sad that it was the last class of the three week session. I hope that the class returns. For our last class we did a lot of challenging poses. We even did my favourite pose, tree pose. After the class our instructor photographed our drawings. She said that she would email us the photos. I hope that she will not forget.
After class I had just enough time to grab something to eat then head over to Center Stage to see The Boys From Syracuse. I was ushered to my seat again by Paul. I used to have classes with Paul when I was a theatre/art major at Towson. Since he never gives any indication of previously encountering me I never say anything to him like, Hey did’nt you used to go to Towson? I think we had a class or two together! Anyway, his non reaction is not the least bit odd to me because odds are he does not remember me as I am not a very outgoing memorable person. I think the classes we had together was either Mojo Gentrys or more popularily known around campus as just plain old, Mojo drama class or perhaps it was Stan Browns drama classes for voice and movement. I can not remember which...
The Boys From Syracuse Quick Review
The reason why I switched my usual matinee subscription tickets for evening tickets was because I did not want to miss the last Yoga Drawing Class. I felt that seeing one peformance at night would not be so bad. This of course was foolish on my part as I was yet again fighting to stay awake. What I saw of the play was pretty good. It had a fast manic comedic pace. The singing and dancing were top notch. I also liked that it had a multi-racial cast. It was like every colour of the human rainbow was represented on stage. I only wish that I was not coming back from a yoga class when I saw it.
