What do you create?
work -- a lot of paperwork.
mess, yummy food, predictable assignments for uni. Mostly mess though, at the moment!
I strive for creating order out of chaos, but every so often I create chaos instead. I compose an occasional bon mot; some fairly literate screeds and diatribes and a great deal of tedious moaning and groaning.
I create my own state of being.
Usually havoc, but in my off-hours I create writings.
Stories. I enjoy creative writing in addition to more journalistic endeavors. I write some poetry as well. I take photographs which I post on the company Web site along with some of the stories I write. I also have a column on there called Valley Bytes - it is new each Wednesday - www.shenandoah.com. I have been writing a column for 19 years, so it is good to be back, though not in traditional print. Check it out if you like. (ps. that is my picture o n the left - I took it also).
For work - I'm a graphic designer, I do newsletter, brochures, business reply cards, for church I create PPT designs for the services and in my life I created two children.
focus right now is a variety of visuals. In addition to semi-traditional
still photography I'm currently also doing multi- layered video art and
designing screens for their display.
Mostly I create programs. Sometimes I create a cheery atmosphere. I occasionally create amusement and bemusement as I strive to maintain my reputation for being an oddball IT person. I aim to create tolerance for people who are different by showing that different is not necessarily bad.
Probably best at creating spaces for other folks to collaborate and work in. Like to think I create a sense of support and encouragement as well.
Chaos, database applications, cookies with my grandchildren.
A couple websites, some waste, oxygen which is good for the plants, and a mix of humor and frustration for those around me.
i create order. when there is trouble i usually straighten everything out and point out the clear ways to fix things. i am like the common sense in a room full of chaos and stupidity.if someone needs a solution or way out of something i am the one.
i am officially the problem solver.
i create understanding, comprehension. i am by nature a teacher. its what
i do. its what i have to do. i cant be happy if i dont teach. even if
i dont know it myself, i can learn it and explain it so that the person
with the problem will understand it.
