It's happening.

The podcast is finally happening! It's out there. You can listen to it right now. I wasn't sure for a while if I was even going do it.

When I first started this site, this wasn't even what it was going to be. But then, my wife and I had a big life change. She was diagnosed with breast cancer and I just wanted to express myself and meet others that did the same.

You can read all about what's going on in my life in my daily cartoon journal "Then This Happened..." so I won't go into that here.

What I do want to talk about is how over the past month I met all these amazing people that came forward and told me about their own lives. AND, How they manage to express themselves in their own ways.

This was an inspiration to see what they do and interact with all of them.

The first person I met, Holly Meyers, was just a great inspiration. Because, like me, she has older kids and still just does it! Puts it out there.

It's hard for me not to just tell you right now about all of the other people you are going to meet along with me, but that would be getting ahead of myself. We've got all different types of artists in the next few weeks - photographers, writers, crafters, painters and one that aspires to be a tattoo artist.

I love the conversations and interactions I've had with them since this began. So you'll be hearing a lot about that and how this kind of thing is really helping someone like me figure out how to keep going, even this late in life.

I hope that maybe it does that for you too.

Anyway, just wanted to say that.

Be well and talk to you soon.

Tom

Overseas shipping part 2.

I was eventually able to explain the situation and they are going to look into it. So it's closer to getting figured out at least.

This week I meet Sharon Bjyrd

Sharon is a painter who moved here from Chicago. She started out going to school for commercial art, which I realize is what we called it before it was graphic design. The story for the inspiration that started her interest in painting? Grace Jones. One of my favorite reasons so far. You can see more of her work on her Instagram.

Overseas shipping.

I felt bad for the person in the call center. They really seemed like this was very confusing to them.
