Glowworms!

Posted on: June 15, 2016

Feel like something from the realm of world history today. Must be thinking about my father, Douglas Anderson Hladik who served in the ETO in WWII. ( look up ETO if you don’t know what that means). Was awarded the Bronze Star. More on this later-it’s a great story of personal initiative and the bravado of youth.

So is this true??? Shall I start awarding prizes to the first person to respond correctly? Still building a following for this blog.

Why? Feeling frustrated. I know we all do. I need to clear all this bad energy from my art process. I have had so many people in my art career/lifetime who have promised me connections, galleries-the moon! I wonder why anyone would make unnecessary gratuitous promises. Still working under outrageously difficult circumstances. Worse than yours? Maybe. Share them with me in comments. I’m Still Standing!

His encyclopedia was created from fact, best guesses, rumor, unverified accounts and utter garbage. All taken at face value as the truth. Feel you are getting closer to my premise?
I decided that I would do the same, with a conscious twist.
