Am I Conservative Or Am I Liberal?

I am a very conservative guy in many ways.  No, really!  Here are just three of my conservative declarations: Declaration I: Be Fiscally Responsible Fiscally I am very conservative.  Ultra-conservative.  More conservative than the republicans ever thought of being apparently.  (With sentence structure I can be liberal.) You see, unlike the republicans, I think that we should not spend more… Continue reading

NPR: Creative Spaces

Today, on my way home, Michele Norris did the first broadcast in a series on creative spaces, the physical space in which creative people choose to create. Her first broadcast featured artist James Prosek’s studio, an old schoolhouse built in 1850. Being the creative sort myself, I know how much attention I pay to the space in which I work… Continue reading
