Flying Hours

Dad was a farmer and a pilot. Maybe these are connected; outside, horizontal and being surrounded by weather. He always had a private plane of some sort, they are listed in this log. He began his flight log and his training Feb 5, 1948 while he lived at the YMCA in Minneapolis, Minnesota, room 510.  The last entry is May 17, 2000 in the Glasair N237JH 180 he’d built. He went solo at 3:30pm for an hour and a half. In the remark section he wrote: ‘Verios’. His stroke took away his speech and spelling, but not his flying. Such a beautiful signature.

Have a great break @mecagd Juniors and Seniors! Thursday's reviews were evidence of a great semester of learning and hard work. Thank you critics and faculty for your support and attention. 
#mecagd #mymecawork #artschool #graphicdesign #mainecollegeofart Lotsa feet #mainer #llbean 1980? Hudson. Poodle #1. (And this was a self-portrait, not a selfie.) Probs during my MFA in photography. #analogphotography #leicacl I bet they don't know I screen shot this and now a yearish later snooping around in my photo files it still makes me happy. (Thank you #mecagd alums -now -colleagues for the text then and surprise again today!) Especially as we wrap up an intense semester of teaching and learning. It's always about the people and the creative curiously that keeps us going and thankful. Thank you again. Tired #archiepoodle contemplates the aardvark. Forgotten, Look, Disruption, Anxiety.
 #mecagd 101 : 4 examples of a middle of the semester word image project. (I hope the designers forgive my Insta cropping and sequence.) Beautiful last class work today at final critiques.
