Tomorrow I have a meeting with the student Veteran's Club. I'm going to present my idea and ask for participants.
I'm going to invest in an audio recorder to compliment my little HD video camera (thanks Alex) and I'll have everything I need to dig in.
In the meantime, applications to full-time positions are in progress as the long-term goal of teaching at a university becomes consciously realized and the action plan (plenty full of short-term goals and challenging milestones) unfolds...
Life is good. I'm excited for the surprises and plans of the near future...smiles and crossed-fingers.

Today was a great day.
My emailbox and phone wait for a highly anticipated answer to arrive.
A canvas has been readied!
I feel momentum.
These are by a new-found inspiration, Dmitri Belyukin, who has been a very big part of the motivation and direction I am taking with a new project. There is so much to learn, and always will be.

So I decided, as I listened to the music majors practice, and saw all the students with their books at lunch, that I wanted to "study" too. I went through facebook and picked friends to draw. As long as there are no assignments to be done at work, I think it's okay to "doodle" rather than sit with nothing to do. So long as there is legitimate down-time...I'll continue to do this. If I pick you to stalk and draw...don't panic. It's only because I love you...and miss you. Not creepin'.
I liked this photo because this is the face he always makes when someone has played a practical joke on him and he's about to break out laughing a split second later. He's got such a fun range of expressions.

We went to New York with the intention of attending an all-day festival. But then, PS1 and the MoMa found us, and who were we to turn away? We spent most of the weekend walking, familiarizing ourselves with Brooklyn and Queens. Saw some really great graffiti work and a special exhibit of Matisse work.
Port Authority is no more fun than it ever was. Though I still like bus-rides.
Work with the Dean's Office begins soon. I'm excited to be back on campus. Though, there's an important thing or two that must be accomplished before full work-weeks start up again. It was a good weekend...lots of inspiration and feelings of new direction and possibility.
