No I assure you this site is full of Led. Dont let your children eat it please.
Ive been off doing career changing and management of living in economically harsh times. What can one say, but that in a fix, most people do not consider art a nessessity, but a luxury. (Tell that to the sales person in the framing shop however.)
So my daughter is loving her Arts Academy and I cant help but think Why didnt we have such a luxury when we were children. Oh yeah I know, we were POOR ASS KIDS.
Not knocking the new wave of socio-economics in the world, however it just seems to me that alot of kids, regardless of social strata have alot more than I had as a child. Could also be that we are living in a large city, where I grew up in a small town environment. So if I do something like “deprive” my child of a cell phone, internet access, cable television and console instant action gaming, then am I doing them an injustice. I say welcome to the life of a gen X lover. Embrace creativity and use your freaking (literally) imagination.
I can remember growing up and having the most memorable fun just pretending. Not sitting watching a movie or playing a game, albeit those were fun, but the most creative fun I had was making up games or just playing them out. Hiya! Im the Karate Cat! Jumping around with the imaginings of fighting shadowy creatures that just came from no where. Just running around is the key phrase, not neccessarily talking about excersize so much as just being with yourself and the world around you.
Anyway… thats my two seconds of rant.
Im working happily now as a technical designer for a automation engineering company. And you know what, we still have creative fun in a scary world of engineers and computer drawn imagery. Go figure…
