This is the best I can say it: Follow your dream and ‘keep going’.
I first held an old Kodak bellows camera, and shot, at 4 and a half years old. I am, in a bit over two months, turning 66 years old. And, yes, I have almost always had a still camera or a video camera in my hands, if I wasn’t holding a paint brush or a can of spray paint…or making movies cuz I was ‘On a Mission from God’.
I only painted in that mall four days…others worked several months to make it ready for the shoot. BTW, in case you don’t believe…I was Stand-by Sign Writer here in Chicago on “The Blues Brothers”, sent down by IATSE Local 18 in Milwaukee, because I was good, very good at my art AND craft. When you see Toys r Us and Geoffrey the Giraffe, I painted that, and the stripes that appear later, among other false fronts.
I’ve made it this far, and still, I keep going! You all must, too.
I was told the best way to lead is by example. Liberal or Conservative…take that and RUN with it!
