I’ve made a few updates to my web site:
and now I am on Facebook as well:
I’ve just figured how I can link my Pinterest page to all the others.
Does anyone ever get the feeling that their creative works go unappreciated? Twice in the last few weeks I’ve sent email messages to friends and family telling them of my web site updates and asking for feedback. Both times the response was mostly crickets (Chirp, chirp, chirp…I cam hear them now). The first time a cousin did respond with encouragement but other than that…nothing. I have found this quite hurtful.
I really started having self-doubts. I wondered:
I wasn’t looking for glowing praise and accolades, just the knowledge that perhaps someone cared enough to read, watch, and enjoy my efforts. I started visualizing a list of people I wanted to consider ‘writing off’. Of course that’s extreme, but you get my point.
Any ideas, suggestions?
After several months of scheduling and coordinating, etc. I was finally able to complete the pantheon of Greek gods for my web site. The posters as well as the completed video are available for viewing there. They are available on the Greek Mythology page.

The kids with whom I worked were all novice actors, only a couple with prior acting experience. But in spite of that I think they did a really nice job. Their commitment and hard work show through! I too am, obviously, just a video hobbyist and therefore an amateur. Maybe once I retire I can learn more and really get into making my stuff look more professional.
The pre and post video titles I did are pretty sucky and unimaginative so I will be working with those at some point. I just wanted to get the video up for the kids and fans to see.
