The Best Compliment ...Ever

10/07/07 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: personal, humor, rant

I'm a bit down lately as I typicaly cycle through sometimes. This time triggered by a combination of things: travel for too long/ too often, a couple of screw-ups at work, guilt over not fulfilling some commitments (I left TWifi, didn't wish sister happy birthday personally. haven't seen my granddaughter in oh so many months). The results are despondancy, lethergy, avoidance of company, drinking too much w/o the happy buzz, and worse--crappy writing. Also as I review and attempt to revise older writing, I felt that it is all utter crap and should be hidden before it infects young minds.

So I have been trying to think of some positives and I came across something. IA received a number of emails about my name being mentioned in Monday's "Around Noon" with Dee Perry as she interviewed Patsy and Heather about Gallery Ü-Haul/ArtMIX Überlin. Though I was supposed to participate until work sent me to soggy Florida, Patsy was good enough to mention me as the "inspiration" for the program in the press release. Thanks so much to Heather for actually talking me up.

I have never been an inspiration before and I'll admit it feels pretty good.

Listen to the interview here (first 20 minutes)
Ginley has posted about it and here are her pix.
