I changed all my social media accounts to reflect my new title
Those of us who FINALLY claim our right to call ourselves Polymaths
are neither bragging or lacking in humility.
Personally, I have finally come to the point that I am tired of trying to fit in.
On one hand, those who believe in specialization
criticize polymaths for being dilettantes
and on the other, we are accused of being pretentious.
I will never fit in, no matter what.
I am what I am
I now choose to claim what I am.
after years of writing poetry, proposals,
academic papers and love letters,
here is how I am finally able to
wrap my head around screenwriting
that is definitely manageable
To Live and Die in LA
I’ve been taking a lot of comic book classes
during the coronavirus
Last week, I did an artist residency with CAMP and artist Gabrielle Bell
Usually the residency is in the mountains outside Toulouse,
but, you know, Covid
It was an amazing group of people online from all over the globe
Gabrielle stressed that comics
are autobiographical, and they make you feel something
(right up my alley!!)
I just posted my comic, I and Me,
mixing it with collage, which Gabrielle loved
I like that her style is so personal,
and I like the idea I can add this to my automediality repertoire
In my other classes, I am looking towards creating a female character
that is more traditional (Marvel) in style
It is taking a lot of time and effort,
because I am learning anatomy
I also love Pulp Fiction book covers,
and have wanted to paint some of my own
So the effort I am putting into learning how to draw the figure
is time well spent
I and Me

a point of view
welcome to LA, sun
Finished the first draft
of my first screenplay
of my first short film
first day I've taken the bandage off my oil splatter burn
this was after tripping and falling down
the steps coming home in the dark of the morning
morning walk under the moon and venus
so thrilled that these flowers all bloomed
at the same time!

The black swan theory or theory of black swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalised after the fact with the benefit of hindsight. The term is based on an ancient saying that presumed black swans did not exist – a saying that became reinterpreted to teach a different lesson after the first European encounter with them.
