Poster:  The Sixties - Altman Photography Exhibit

The Sixties - A Photography Exhibit by your Web Host


November 16, 2001

It's been a long, long time since I've submitted an entry into "My Week." A lot has happened to the world and to all of us in these last few weeks.

I might mention that I'm a New Yorker who emigrated to San Francisco a few decades ago. I happened to be inside the World Trade Center this past August, 2 weeks before the tragedy. A week later I found myself beside the Pentagon building while in Washington D.C. All true. I know all of us have stories to tell. My life was deeply impacted and I know yours was too.

What I'd like to now share is news of a 70 piece exhibit of my work currently on display at the Hot Springs Convention Center. I like to thank Steve Arrison and his accomplished staff who have been intelligent, sensitive and incredibly supportive in mounting this show. The exhibit is expected to run for several more months.

We'll be there for a reception January 3 at 5 PM.

I've learned.... That under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.

I've learned.... That the Lord didn't do it all in one day. What makes me think I can?
