Drawing, and learning software related to Multimedia, make me want to wake up each morning. Also, having the opportunity to study a second career as part of a double major is a great blessing... Learning new things fill my day with purpose and helps me learn more about myself.
My new love is Basic Computer programming...!
I had to "scratch" !!!! join us! was created to stimulate the non programmer to learn the basics in a fun, accesible way!
I enjoy immensely throwing ceramics pieces on an electric wheel. It looks easy but it is not so..., especially when you try to throw tall pieces. But, as with all things in life, it is a matter of patience & practice. Ceramics is a very therapeutically hobby.
Learning CSS and drawing using java ( at Khanacademy.org) have helped me to make more use of the left side of my brain, while my hobbies below have for a long time helped me get in touch with the right-side. I like to learn a little bit of everything ; )
I like poetry. My favorite poem: "Chronology" by Diane di Prima which is written in memory of a dead child and how his/her absence is felt through out their house. By the way, I just discovered NeilGaiman's (poem-video) "Instructions" and made me feel right at home. Here is the text of Neil Gaiman's poem.
