Sometimes I forget how our stories become buried in the past. So when a writer from My City Magazine contacted me this past winter, I figured she was contacting me about promoting the Graphic Design program which will be celebrating 20 years this Fall.
Lo and behold, she insisted the story was to be about me… personally. Not one to be comfortable in the limelight, I reluctantly agreed, but always tried to steer back to the graphic design program. The writer, however, became intrigued with the back story… my story. How we shape our lives, our perspective, how we channel it into art, a career, a life… Even so, as I read through the final version of the article after it was published, I was reminded how much of a winding road my life’s journey has been. I’m looking forward to even more adventures in the future!
Whenever any of my students tell me they are unsure how to narrow down their career and/or life choices, I am reminded that my own life has hardly been a straight line. This lovely article written by Anne Trelfa of My City Magazine, though fairly thorough, just barely touches the surface. An adventure nonetheless! Read the article and come to your own conclusions!
