Have you kept a journal in the past? Now?

Yes. Also did the At-A-Journal Workshop. Stopped sitting my morning pages late 2005. Resumed March 2007. Have struggled with continuity - morning pages became night pages which later revealed self-sabotage choices in the safety of my men's group.

What art form would you like to explore?

1. new make-craft design and prototype techniques for electro-mechanical projects. 2. hammer & chisel metal into sculpture. 3. hand held metal sculpture with wire & metal (calder). 4. pick up the guitar after 20+ years. 5. art of invention.

What is your primary art form?

Make-craft. I visualize solutions to everyday technology problems and products. Usually frustrated w/not having adequate skill to prototype what I see in full motion 3D color images. Learning 2 see it as a gift instead of a burden & to nurture it.


Went thru facilitated AW 12 wks in '99 with Paulette M. @ Old St. Pat's then again @ Transitions on Kingsbury (20+). March resumed AM pages. New creative projects brewing. Still do A-dates, miss monthly meets & hearing about struggles & successes.
