I am at the central library getting books about pop art. I want to learn the history and get as much information as I can. I believe in knowledge. I have been using the library ever since I was little. I remember my mother taking me to the library every now and then so that I can get books and movies to use at home. I would go to the art section and pick out the "how to draw" books. That's how I learned how to draw using shapes and lighting. I used to like getting all kinds of movies. Some of my favorite are the "eye witness" videos. they were a documentary series that covered different subjects. I thank the library for everything that I have learned. Because of my poor upbringing I had to rely on outside sources. I give many thanks to a great institution.
Andy called me an "autodidact" the other day, and I remember not know what the word meant so I immediately started googling it. I like to learn. I suddenly realized that people who don't like learning are people who let life go by and they are at ease with it all. That must feel like a different kind of freedom.
