About this site:
In 1993, I spent the year writing in a blank datebook from 1954. Now, in 2010, I'm posting each page on the web and writing about it. You may want to start at the beginning.

1954: April 16-17

Good day for random quotes.

Mr. Engle and Mr. Wolnski were two teachers at BHS (I say "were" because I don't think they're both still there). Not only that, but they were close friends and taught Interrelated Arts, the sophomore year honors English program which incorporated art content (Engle was an art teacher). And they share a birthday.

The odd drawing was inspired by Renee Magritte's Le Double Secret.

Note at the top -- P.I.P. was the play I filled in for my friend Kyle in. I have absolutely no recollection of the show, other than its location and that I had to wear a suit. Then again, I only had a couple weeks to learn the part, rather than a couple months like everyone else.

The red stamp here was a test print I made with an old newspaper printing block. It's a Sherwin Williams painter bowing, presumably after a paint job well done.

Hmm, that quote at the top right -- "There is always an audience." That's from Nikki, a girl in the P.I.P. play with me. That quote says a lot about her. She acted a little like she was on stage all the time. Not that unusual among theater folks, actually.

The anecdote about the bug was inspired by the comment about hunting down what you love if it doesn't come back to you. I thought it was pretty poignant.
