About Me

It is with wonder that at this moment you clicked the about button.  WordPress has instructional suggestions for a blogger about what readers want to know about the author.  They also say that this page is read more than any other page of information you have on your blog.

I have been blogging for over a decade and, I have had very few readers that ever read my bio.  Believe me, I am not cynical. I truly believe that most readers are interested in the blog and less curious about the author.

After high school, I enjoyed two years in a great cooking school, which gave me skills I still use today.  After that, I spent one and a half years as a draftee and spent most of that time in Vietnam in the Infantry.  Ordinary life returned and I worked in an exclusive country club in East Hampton, New York.  My next move was to Chicago where I owned a small bakery.  While at the bakery I was hired by a top-notch caterer in Chicago.  A few years later I became the Vice President and did very well.  I left at the end of 16 years to move to Arizona where at 50 I entered college and seven years later graduated with a Masters in Fine Arts Degree in Fiber.

I see the world differently now and have many outlets to express myself.  A few years ago I found sculpture to be a remarkable way for expression.  While making the sculptures I began to paint.  Now, painting in watercolor is the only medium I work in.  I was mesmerized by the endless colors you can make and a painting can be soft or as intense in color as you wish.  I know it is the way for me to express my thoughts.

Ten years ago I began blogging.  I have had more than one blog and one day I wanted to combine them all.  Together they are a history, a passage of my life and a catalyst to believe its synthesis is of my whole body and my mind.

    Hello Frank
    Dalip often asks about you, he is greatly moved by your story. I don’t know if I ever mentioned that my daughter is a chef in Vancouver. You must be very good to have completed the, I believe, extremely demanding course at the Culinary Institute. Do you still enjoy cooking? For me, it’s good therapy.
    Take care, cyber friend and don’t stop writing and visiting. Although I have been remiss about updating the Clock Struck One.
    The good news is, Dalip is slowly and steadily improving, although he sometimes has bouts of depression.
