    So I have to admit that I dont keep a sketchbook anymore. I did as an undergrad, and I frantically scribbled down evrything I saw that was compelling or any thought that popped into my head.

Then at dinner we had a good... View full entry

    I have realized that my earlier comments were not well received. I deleted the entries to avoid any further problems. I have been under too much pressure and I am venting in the wrong way.
