If Trudi draws the latrine, what does the latrine draw?

FLIES!  hahahahahah!

(First draft of new about page)

Telling the time:

Trudi’s Treasures: a combination of responses, thoughts, ramblings, conclusions and maybe an eCommerce site with my homemade goodies. In celebration of 100+ followers, I set up a brand new Facebook page to showcase their work.

Building the clock:

I was barely five and embarrassed. The joke made was about my chalk drawing of a what appeared to me to be a log cabin in the woods – Hammel woods in Shorewood : Daisies of GSA evening camp with a bunch of unknown-to-me females who COO’d and AHH’d over the piece of art the prior evening. I was embarrassed then too.

From latch-key kid to an alleged late bloomin’ baby boomer, I still struggle with response time and quick witted self expression. It’s taken some therapy; and the gut pit burps up more quickly than it used to – depending on the topic.

Maybe I will at some point, but first, I need to learn to market in this ever changing world. To do that, I need a following, go figure, introvert moi. I flunked the personality test; it says I’m an INFJ; and whilst I hate labels – at least there’s some comfort in a warm albeit itchy sweater.

My 3D world is a battle on all fronts right now, Will I share that? Oh probably in six months or so. Until then, Blogging 101 has been a refuge.

Taking the plunge.

Writers were a staggering 121% more likely to suffer from the condition,
and nearly 50% more likely to commit suicide than the general population.”

– From “The dark side of creativity: Depression + anxiety x madness = genius?”
by William Lee Adams

From my own experience, I know that often times, depression and anxiety can go hand in hand with creativity. I have good friends and family members who are artists, musicians, writers, filmmakers, actors, directors, and producers. I would say about 75% of them have struggled with some form of mental illness at one time or another.

When creative people are so stressed and busy that they do not take the time to utilize their gifts, it becomes difficult. The other issue is that many people…
