WHY is this here? Once, when I questioned someone about lack of formatting on documents, I was told the leader is “authentic.” She’s “punk.” I kept my mouth shut, cos I wanted to remain on good terms with the person leading the group.
People say SHOW YOUR FACE. Ok, this is who I am. Divine passed and my hair grayer. I still have that dress. Can fit into my punk clothes. I have one of my cameras and flash. But that was then and this is now.
You can take me outta punk, but never the punk outta me. I was a FAMOUS early punk photographer. WILD. OH the stories I could tell you. The stories my pals share. My photos. You don’t know the half of it. AND I earned college degrees by then. Yeah, the college teacher turned punk. Early on. Always a pioneer!
Beloved photos in shows and museums. Involved in computer graphics, programs and more for over 30 years. Yikes. I taught computer stuff at colleges, universities, vocational centers and computer training centers. I continue to learn. Online. Books, DIY. Teaching online. I’ve been around. I’m still here.
Gotta continually update skills and expand possibilities. Or not. But your competition is following this sage advice.
IF I can do all this, so can YOU! IF you clap your hands three times and BELIEVE in Yourself, Your Dream and this Growth Empowering Process. Ok, you don’t have to clap. Just believe. “Watch. Create. Shine.”
