Noteworthy 1.2.20

Back after a hiatus, here’s a few interesting links this year:

A great write up of the state of our artistic economy in Wyoming. It’s incredible how resilient and resourceful the creative community is in our state. I am awed by the talent in Wyoming and inspired by their determination and spirit!

A bit of insight about Herman Melville’s later years as a poet. I had no idea!

This is a great throwback read on one of my favorite performances of all time. The great Vincent D’Onofrio’s timeless role in Men In Black. He absolutely destroys that part in the Eggar suit!

Hope you are all having a marvelous 2020! Make art, make haste!

Monday

I come out of my cave all

snug blanketed

to meet a world

smiling hostile at times.

Hostile because of its indifference

not because it’s out to get me.

I caution you to look both ways:

and ensure you are wearing enough padding to handle the onslaught, as all of us adjust to the workweek.

Be well, friends.

P.S. The padding is the love you have to offer.

CD18 – My Creative Streamlining Begins, My Cats, and Acceptance

Thursday Lunch is for Podcasting! What’s working so far!

Some things that are working in my quest to be a better working-class creative, and how I was able to make progress on short-form content. Priorities, priorities, priorities.

Learning to be upfront about where I’m falling short, and seeing results from Bullet Journaling.

And noisy cats that I love so much. Make art, make haste.

The Creative Drive Podcast is back. Let’s go!

Hi folks,

It’s been quite a few months since I’ve been at this solo podcasting thing. Here’s a vibrant moment of clarity about why things don’t pan out, and what the gameplan is moving forward with this creative life of writing and recording. All good things!.

Much love,
