Hi, I would like to take a few moments to tell you a little about myself,
My name is Joseph, from the start. I've had a tough go in this thing called life
I was a preemie, weighing only two, and a half pounds, and birth with epilepsy, in which I struggled with, for nine years of my developmental stage of life.
Learning was a difficult journey for me in the beginning, I had to develop my own unique and some would say an odd way of seeing the world.
This made learning a challenge for me, mostly to resolve the most common of everyday problems such as talking, and relating to others, mostly verbally which made social interaction awkward, difficult, dealing with seizures daily, added to the stress of making friends.
And, as the years progressed;
I being unable to keep up with my peers, I
leaned toward the creative, first withdrawing, and then towards the visual media. which became far easier than verbal communications with others it was far easier for me to absorb the visual than was reading, writing, and pronunciation than any of the other such learning tools were.
So, I started to doodling, and then, I eventually learned to draw, and sketch.
This helped me relate to my strangely perceived world around me.
Jumping ahead, many years of feeling ostracized, and being different than all of my peers, I became introverted, and then melancholy, holding fast to the only real friend I had ever known in my young life,
and it would turn out to be my saving grace and the tool by which I would begin to relate to others through this radically perceived physical plane.
Although, I still have many of my quirks that I kept from my youth, and as far as the common person would perceive me still quiet odd, even today.
But I digress, flash forward to today,
I still retain many of my hard to shake oddities of perception.
But I have learned through the years of hard work, and perseverance, to use them to my advantage through "the creative expressions" and it is through that venue that I come to you today.
