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, I decided to start doing more updates on my blog. The reason I have not blogged since last summer is because I was and still am trying to deal with my fathers death. My mother died several years ago. I can not recall the exact year she died. The only thing I can recall is that after she died I could not bring and still can not bring myself to watch the TV show Friends. The reason being is because all the parents of the characters on that show are still alive. Yeah, sounds like a petty reason to boycott a show but true.
So with my fathers death this left me feeling literally all alone in the world, like a 30something year old orphan Annie without Daddy Warbucks, or Sandy the dog. For the the first time in my life I have no one to turn to. Sure, I knew that one day my parents would die. But it was always in an imagined future where I was in my fifties, married, and had a couple of kids. I never imagined I would loose them before I hit retirement age.
