Hi,

Thank you for accepting me into the community.

My reasons for joining are a little long to squeeze into this post, so I  put them in a blog whose link is below. But I'm not looking to recruit followers for the blog. Actually, I prefer having discussions here on G+.

Inertia

Once you get started, can you stop? Once you stop, can you get started again? Daily? Hourly?

Thank you +Andrij Harasewych for mentioning Philly in your recent correspondence with me. Haven't been in a while. But I've been reminiscing. 

I'm originally from New England (and am back there now, temporarily) but I left as soon as I possibly could. And I picked Philadelphia, site unseen, based on the art school I chose to attend. 

As a young man I lived, to varying degrees, in all four corners: sophomore year at 15th and Rodman, junior year in Northern Liberties (back then, it was a ghost town!), after graduation I found myself near the art museum, and after meeting my wife-to-be, down on Fabric Row in Queen Village. There was a number of moves further away before we eventually settled in the northern suburbs.

As soon as my girls were old enough, (about 8 and 10) I started taking them into town on day trips. That's them below, feeding the pigeons at Rittenhouse Square. (The two at center, don't know the little one on the right.) They're lumbering teenagers now, soon to go off to college themselves. I wonder if either will go somewhere in Philly. I'd love it if they did because then I'd have an excuse to get down there more often. 

If you ever have a chance to visit, I highly recommend it.

"Chris Plunkett, who has taught visual arts at Orchard Gardens for the past three years, said the classes help develop trust between the faculty and students. During one particularly memorable project, he asked his eighth graders to write a memoir about a life experience and what they learned from it and then create a self-portrait.
“I couldn't believe how honest and candid they were, and how much I learned about them,” Plunkett said.  “I mean it was really, it was one of the most incredible things I've seen in eighth graders.”
Noting that kids need more than test prep, he added, it may have seemed “a little crazy” to get rid of the security guards to hire art teachers but “I definitely feel it was the right move in the end.”

This is just the latest in an incredible, outrageous standard practice in our military.
