The Doctor Isn't Really In

A drawing of a doctor

Long ago, while a grade-schooler in Kokomo, Indiana, I recall drawing a picture of a doctor, possibly a surgeon, operating on someone. At the time, I thought it would be fun to be a doctor. Later I realized I didn't want to be a doctor, I just liked to draw doctors operating on people! (I grew out of that.)  I also went through a phase where I thought it would be cool to be a botanist. But no, I just liked drawing plants.

Being an artist and designer has given me many opportunities to meet amazing people, doing cool things. I have been able to temporarily work alongside smart, accomplished people, without the hassle of actually learning what they learned.

Shoe House: A Seller's Market

A shoe house for sale 

If you really wanted to live in a shoe, several questions come to mind.

  • Where would you get one to fit?
  • Are they available in new and used?
  • Are they available in various widths?
  • How do you prevent dampness, odor, and athlete's foot?
  • Do they come in pairs? Or are they randomly available like mystery shoes on the side of the road?
