“Fin” is the Latin word for “end”… “ish” is used to indicate a “sort of” or “about” condition. “I’ll meet you around noonish for the moon launch.” Every now and then, I feel like I’m “finished” with Ed’s ArtSite. Artists like to “fin” their work. But I’m not sure if this particular project has an “end”. Whenever I think I’m at the fin, something always comes up-ish.
Sometimes an old familiar road develops too many ruts. Sometimes the best path is a new one.
Peter Gabriel’s, Solsbury Hill is a favorite song about turning from an old path onto a new and different path… it’s about change.
The Internet is Earth’s lighted metaphysical stage. Building Ed’s ArtSite has been a rewarding experience akin to meeting a stranger and not knowing what to expect. Then after a lengthy exchange becoming great friends!
Katie, my youngest, asked me a while back to write something about myself for her in a little “dad” book to have for posterity. I hope this website does a better job than I did in my book.
If you like Ed’s ArtSite, please share it!
Below I explain my artist’s poem from the home page for the benefit of anyone who would like an explanation.
art, music, and words awaken the senses
(inspirational works can make us feel good or bad)
composing reflections from life’s reasoned fences
(we each have a unique perspective so our reaction to art can vary)
encoded skill and mind is the foundry
(artists each have unique and special talents to share)
beyond the grip of night’s emotional boundary
(some, maybe many, artists experience depression and anxiety intermingled with manic creativity)
Special thanks to Susan1 and Susan2, without whom I would be lost in space.
Thanks to my family and friends for their help with spelling and grammar. But mostly for the life lessons, love, patience, and understanding.
Thank YOU for completing Ed’s ArtSite.
Most of all, thanks to God, who deserves ALL the credit for everything!
